Am I the only one in here who adores Microsoft lately? Few years ago I liked them but I wasn't A DIE HARD FAN BOY. Now I am for Microsoft everytime. Defending IE/Bing & Spreading out the word of WINDOWS PHONES.
Thank you Microsoft! One day  I will work for you!

My God. I can't take this anymore. This is too much awesomeness to take in just a few hours. Cant wait for the final product. Watching the live stream and wondering how windows phone 8.1 would benefit from some of the features especially the bung unified search. Can't freaking wait!!!

ricmar says:

Shouldn't it be \\build\ instead of //build/ ? :)

Mark Cesari says:

Not if its in the cloud?

MrGoodSmith says:

I still don't like the implementation of the Start button. It just takes you to the start screen where all app icons are displayed in an unorganized manner. The original start menu had all apps categorized and alphabetically organized. I had to manually add the start menu in Windows 8 using the toolbar feature just to get convenient access to my applications.

Swiftyrox says:

Just go to Stardock.com and purchase Start8 for $5.....Not only do you get a customizable start menu (much like what you have always been used to)....BUT....there is also a setting that allows you to bypass booting into the Metro UI and go right to the desktop. Once you've had Windows 8 for a while...navigation isn't a hassle...but Start8 was the perfect remedy, and one I would recommend to all "New" users of Windows 8 to offer them some familiarity and flexibility!! :o)
