    2. Windows 8.1 is pointless on my desktop if all of the new features on 8.1 are on the Metro side. (the Start button leading to the Metro screen is mockery) I had far more thrill downloading the Release Preview long ago because at least, there was a hack to bring back the old Start button and Start menu so I had dual booted that with my Windows 7 at that time and was worth the fun.

    3. I am simply gonna wait for the uptake of user feedback once users (with faster connections) get a taste of it. Maybe that can change my mind a bit that I highly doubt right now since we've long been notified of what new there is to expect.

    I'll most likely download it and install it in Virtualbox. It will be a lot easier to remove when I decide it is nothing more than 8.0 with a few cosmetic changes. You can only polish a turd so much.
    A separate disk/partition is quite easy to handle too !

    I think its a given that if you don't like (hate) Metro this update isn't going to change your mind. I personally spend a lot more time on my desktop than I do in Metro. Still, I welcome any improvements that may make Metro more multi monitor friendly. I'll wait till I actually have it in front of me before I pass verdict though.

    Yes, it saves a lot of time. I like the cloud services as long as I have a choice of what's stored there.

    Thank you and thank all that posted information here.

    Why not give the member his due for trying to do some good? I have started to dislike the way people are getting put down on forums by the 'elder' forum members!
