There is also (and you'll be so excited about this) : A new way of closing apps!
Apps can now also run inside a window if so desired gaining the usual menus icons.

Excellent!

I get fed up with having to close down an App, simply because I want to quickly check something like emails!

Right click on the icon on the start screen and you should have the option to pin to the task bar

I admit it has my interest.

so I read these 2 articles

http://winsupersite.com/windows-8/what-heck-happenin...
http://winsupersite.com/windows-8/windows-81-update-...

Basically that guy is moaning that microsoft are improving the desktop experience and have realised that the desktop user still has relevance.

I hope the media are not all like him as they may push microsoft to ignore the desktop again.

I think I will be sticking win 8.1 on a spare rig now to give it a 2nd chance and see what this update 1 brings to the table as well.

To me I have always seen some merits in metro. I see the metro screen as a excellent idle screen. As it can show all sorts of useful info on the live tiles, and some metro based apps are useful such as netflix.

But my issue has always been that the desktop felt like a hack job on the win8 RTM and I was seeing too many bugs, performane issues in my testing but I will give it a 2nd chance now.

adding a power button was the sane thing to do, windows 8 seems to be improving by judgement of these articles I am reading.

if its like the win7 power button then the software power button will be easily reconfigurable and even able to do any one of 4 functions on each use.

shut down
restart
sleep
hibernate

and possibly unique to win8 as it has extra uefi functions
reboot to bios
fast reboot

unless someone has 6 physical power buttons they cant do all this smile
