    A bunch of that stuff was around in base 8.1 if you had been paying attention but 8.11 looks good, if they can sort out manageability of metro apps then it will be way better.

    Yeah. I'm not sure why he mentioned things like the "show desktop background on the Start Screen" setting since that was in 8.1 too.

    On a related note: a video of the new Start Menu in action (though they've given no ETA for it)

    Actually looks pretty slick. I think I like it.

    When are they doing this!!!!! I can't wait for that, I actually like it this is what they should have done in the first place with the option to use this or the Metro Interface!

    I've just read that windows 8.1 Update 1 has been withdrawn from WSUS because it can stop connecting with WSUS over SSL

    Windows 8.1 Update (KB 2919355) prevents interaction with WSUS 3.2 over SSL - WSUS Product Team Blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs

    Shame, I was looking forward to that this morning.
