    Just in case you wanted to make your SP open to Desktop by default, that can be done in Control Panel > Taskbar and Navigation > Navigation Settings.

    This will please you to no end Tony, but since my SP is now in full-on tablet mode as opposed to desktop-replacement mode, I actually PREFER to boot to the Modern UI Start Page, especially now they have "mostly" fixed Modern IE :)

    Perhaps accepted different religion? Regardless, we're happy everyone is happy.

    I really like this update. Currently have twitter snapped to the left and tweetro snapped to the rt with ie in the middle, i love hoe the desktop handles snapping now. It no longer snap with the open app previews all in a row. Snaps just like a normal metro app now. This preview does not seem like a preview to me. And a big thx to Arnold for the 50 pm's helping me set up the VHD. I will report back on my experience with the multi monitor stuff. I was too busy this weekend in the pool to bother.

    You're welcome Tony.

    I agree with the observations about 8.1 and while it gave me a scare, it was better than the 8.0 Consumer Preview of the past.

    Folks, don't get too excited I am using Modern UI more. With a touch interface like the SP 8.1 has improved things, but for a desktop mouse user it is still rough. I'm still running Windows 7 on my desktop.
