    Windows 8.1 Pro


    So the age old question, does this update pack have anything performance wise that's worthwhile?

    And also, can some of the new additions be turned off? Such as apps on the Desktop and power button on Start?

    I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I'd rather have one upheaval of the UI design and remove ALL the old vestiges of Aero design and replace it all with lush metro designed everything. I'm getting tired of the 2006 inspired Desktop and modern inspired design language smooshed together....

    Umm... who's in charge of the Windows team? I'm just speechless. I don't know, I don't understand how Microsoft works.
    I read your explanation in your following post, but still not clear. I am not having any such probs with the taskbar??

    OK! Forget it, I forgot that I am using Modernmix, which may be helping?

    If you have the patience, a very sound idea. But this is the "signed off" release to OEM partners. There may be minor updates, but I don't think (?? - lol ) it will upset the applecart.

    Hi there
    Your server is trying to get me to sign up to all sorts of "premium" things -- I think I'll grab it from a torrent from one of the usual places.


    If your ISP is blocking torrents (Italy and the UK seem particularly prone to this practice at the moment) have a read of this link.

    It's up to you and your maker on what you do with the info -- I hope it's not against the Forum rules - I dislike censorship by any organisation -- punish people on what they download - OK - but simply blocking sites --!!!!


    Cheers

    Well stated edee - that's the way I feel also. I don't enjoy re-doing things anymore than I am forced to. Microsoft does enough of that for me without me adding to it.

    hey there
    strange I get nothing at all from them just the download page, I didn't even have to register to get the download.
    maybe your browser not blocking adds, im using IE11 with adblock plus
    its not my server I found the links online.
    if its against forum rules please delete.
    was just trying to help with more links.
