Windows 8.1 isn't that bad. Much better than 8.

You can boot directly into the desktop, they cleaned up a few things in the file explorer, and they finally made the Start screen not horrible. You can make icons smaller or larger, so you can fit more s*** on screen.

I actually prefer it to the W7 start menu. Much faster. Since they worked out the tablet/Metro kinks, the next logical step is MS redesigning the desktop so everything has that flat, colorful look, too, in 8.2.
You're awesome.

You're right, message boards have never been used to express opinions. Never ever.

Post that image to a different site like imgur, because the original link is blocked at my work. I'm curious to see the tiles.
