Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1 was officially released yesterday, 10/17. Has anyone messed around with it yet? I never could get used to Windows 8 and so far this update hasn't changed my mind. It's a little easier to navigate but still odd compared to Win 7.

What I did like was the ability to boot directly to the desktop. The new Windows (start) icon allows you to switch between your desktop and app screen and with a right click you have a scaled down version of a start menu.

I've got it installed in parallel with Win 7 so I'll keep it awhile and toy with it.

Also the upgrade was (I think) 3.6gb in size.

Re: Windows 8.1

Wife's laptop has 8. I avoid it like the plague. My work computer and this one both have XP. I'm mostly happy with it (no 64 bit capabilities, restricted RAM)
