Looks pretty cool. Some good thinking here. Windows 8.1 makes video debut ahead of June 26th preview release | The Verge [video=youtube;VQb5caeSo00]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQb5caeSo00&feature=player_embedded[/video] Surprisingly, just allowing the user to have the desktop wallpaper also be on the Start Screen makes the transition far less jarring. Funny that something so trivial would make a difference. One thing I wish they would do is add "jump lists" to tiles. One last point. After using my SP for a while now I had forgotten how HARD Windows 8 is to use with just a mouse. Was at BestBuy yesterday researching some Home Theater stuff and was forced to use Windows 8 with a non-touch desktop. Wow, almost impossible. One thing MS could do to make this better is to have the mouse cursor work just like a finger touch. So, on the Start screen, instead of having to use the scrollbar at the bottom to navigate horizontally, allow mouse users to click and drag creating a finger touch effect. This would be a big help IMHO.
