    Updated to Windows 8.1 and I'm stunned. Is this suppose to be BETTER? Holy christ. This is complete and utter garbage compared to Windows 8. Those horrific start screen icons with orange backgrounds which you can't change is a total no go for me. Back to Windows 8.

    You can change everything after Windows is activated.

    Those tile icons background color? No, you can't.

    Compare this to Windows 8 start screen tile backgrounds. Can you see no difference?

    Do the different colors mean anything? Almost all of mine have blue backgrounds in Windows 8.0. It's only the live tiles and a few Metro apps that have a different color. I don't see any way to change the color of the tiles in 8.0.

    You can't change them in Windows 8.0 but you also don't need to. They're just fine with the theme color. They all have a same color in background excluding Metro Apps. But in 8.1 they're not. They're orange, blue, green, what ever. Looks horrible.
