    The differences are not too astounding! You now have the Power options and search as an icon, top right, on the modern gui. The properties of the taskbar give you the option to pin Store apps to the taskbar, or not. You can also list desktop Apps first, and show the apps automatically when you go to start. - Mind blowing is it not!! I understand, and the mysterious phrase is in use again, that there are "under the hood" improvements.
    I did read that IE has been updated to a newer version. Maybe someone can confirm this? Mine now says:
    Version 11.0.9600.17031
    Update version 11.0.7 (KB2919355)

    That is actually possible to happen, since there have been various leaks to the internet. But hey, even the version of this latest leak can change when W8.1 Update 1 is officially released on April!

    The glitch I had with the previous leak is gone as far as I can tell so its not all bad. I was getting a busy cursor a lot when there wasn't anything actually happening to generate it. This install is only a day old though, I just did a clean installed yesterday. I'm actually hoping they create one final version with all these other updates rolled in it. A new 8.1 ISO would be icing on the cake too.

    Downloaded this around noon (MST) yesterday, so for around 24 hours I have been running 8.1.1 without any problems. My IE 11 is showing that it is update Version 11.09000.17031 (KB2919355). As to the update it self there has yet to be any problems. Will test some more later, albeit for now it is time to go for a walk around the golf course and chase a little white ball.

    Did the upgrade this afternoon with each of the 6 updates in the correct order with the reboots as requested. No problems at all.

    I did a system restore and had another go from a different source for the download. IE now shows Version 11.0.9600.17031, Update version 11.0.7 (KB2919355). I think I'm now on the same page as everybody else.
