    Are people really excited for Windows 8.1? I got Windows 8.1 since the beginning of October from my university for free. It's the same thing as Windows 8 with the exception of a start button. I don't see anything exciting about it but well whatever floats your boat.

    Okay I admit the boot speed is very impressive on an HDD disk (5-8 seconds). But other than that nothing else seems exciting.
    Nup .... I did not need the "FAKE" start buton .."ClassicShell works fine" ...but being able to disable the things that I don't like on the TILES ... :=}

    (BTW ...downloading .... slow like hell ..."

    If that's the "Trust this PC" prompt you can skip it, I do believe there is a, "I can't do this now" or something like that option. I skipped it and did it latter on when I had my e-mail setup and working. The action center will remind you to do it.
