I still can't open password protected sections in OneNote on iOS and Android though

The quality of the mobile Office 365 experience leaves a lot to be desired, the lack of dedicated tablet apps is bizarre as well

The ModernUI apps are slowly turning back into standard ones; close button, minimise button, title bar, taskbar... all it needs is the maximise / restore control and the backtrack is complete
The Start screen improvements just go to show common sense isn't that common, how the power and search buttons weren't in 8.0 in the first place is a mystery to me - normal users were never going to find their way with them hidden from view.
Interesting about boot to desktop possibly being default, is Metro a dead duck? Just as I've grown to kinda like it... typical haha

They still have faith in their start screen then.

They are pulling the Nokia brand and pulling the phone bit from the Windows phone brand to make things even more easy to differentiate.

Yay virtual desktops To be honest I'm surprised we didn't see it sooner!

I'm actually very okay with this new start menu and if it does end up like that I have no quarrel about upgrading my PC to 8.2/9. I honestly don't think there's anything wrong with TIFKAM in of itself, the concept isn't bad and I like the idea that tiles can update, it gives them much more functionality. I just think the fullscreen, using-swipes nonsense was terrible for desktop and laptop users.. On Win8 tablets it's surprisingly intuitive and I've found no trouble at all with it, even though I only got my hands on a Win8 tablet for the first time 2 days ago, I've had no trouble. In fact, desktop mode has given me more trouble due to the resolution, a lot of things you need to click on are a bit too small for my fingers.
