    BUG - the start menu button opens up a screen full of kiddie squares, can't even see the taskbar.

    That is a bad one.

    On the plus side, if you type "start", it offers you start8 , the famous start menu replacement.

    Not pretty even in Hot Pink.

    Oh well back to MS' real OS, the one with a desktop experience.

    Hey, it's only what's needed to do the world's real work.

    I didn't notice any problems with IE11 by now.

    Have you seen a notification center section on 8.1? Someplace where you can view notifications that you missed.

    Didn't see a notification centre, might be one somewhere.

    I have escaped to the sanity of Ubuntu for the time being.

    Will have another wrestle with 8.1 when I am feeling patient.

    Dual Boot: Back to W7 and Ubuntu 12.04


    From the Classic shell forums (posted by user fresnogamer):

    "The first thing I noticed is the Windows start button under the classic shell start button. I restarted a couple of times but it was still there. So I researched online how to disable the official Windows start button. No luck.

    At the end of the day I just disabled the Classic Shell start button. Now when I click on the start button it shows the Windows start screen and when I use the Windows key I get Classic Shell. For now this works for me because I usually use the Windows button to get the start menu.

    If anyone else has a better solution, please let me know.

    Thanks all!"

    We shall see how long it takes for them to get around MS on this one. I have a feeling though that they will get it working and then MS will kill it again with the RTM....

    Geeve

    Thanks for the update. Fingers crossed that its available although there has been zero mention in any of the reviews.
