I heard the "start" button on the desktop just takes you to the dashboard, which seems a waste of taskbar space to me.

Do i get any increase in performance or compatibility on my games? less crashes? Anything useful?.

i think it's worth it
there are a lot of little things that you do notice that make it a more enjoyable OS like the way the app drawer works and how it doesn't add tiles for readme files to your metro thing now. the start menu can be right clicked for useful options.

i can't tell you about performance though...seems probably the same

Only if the Crysis 4 will run on Windows 8.1 i'll buy and use it! Until then i'm a Windows 7 64-bit user.

Easier access to shutdown and better searches are worth it for me. It makes metro much better too if you are into that sort of thing.

Very much so. I believe 8.1 > 7.
