    Nice!

    I hope to see feature parity between PC settings and the Control Panel in the final version or the next update.

    +1 I'm with you. Still, when using universal search, you're likely to find the settings after you start typing.

    So when the update comes for the UI should we all un-install things like Classic shell before hand?

    I'm guessing we should as it might mess things up bad!

    Update 1 mainly affects Metro so no I don't think so. Wouldn't hurt waiting a day or two when it releases.

    We asked for the return of the start menu, they gave us a start 'button'

    We asked for Control Panel to be integrated into PC Settings

    They gave us a link to Control Panel from PC Settings

    Definitely trolling us

    Still not much new that I can't already have with Start8 and Modern Mix. Modern Mix even gives you the Metro Apps in a window, which MS claim is soooo difficult to do.

    Man do I love Windows 8 with my new favorite utility, Windows 7. You just install Windows 7 over Windows 8, and you get all the great features back and NO METRO UI!!! Really cool stuff :)

    Once it's triggered by a executable, it's active system wide. An example:

    • Coretemp.exe runs in systray always and starts with system boot
    • Apply regedit fix to coretemp.exe
    • Will be always applied system wide as long as coretemp.exe is active

    Thanks, but im already using that ofcourse. quite a sh1t fix if you ask me if you have to add the gamepath to the registry and use that command. (especially since the mouse lagg was not there in windows 8)

    just watched a video, they aren't fixing anything, they are messing with it, yes they are "listening" but it seems they can't hear.

    Yeah it seems 8.1 will get updates until the real thing if we go by the rumours - Windows 9.
