Windows Paul Thurrot: "Tipped off by a reader, I checked my System log in Event Viewer today and what did I find but a stack of pending updates for all of the core apps in Windows 8. I'm not 100 percent sure this is what I think it is. But if we're right, it looks like 18 of the core apps in Windows 8 are about to get updated. Or, almost all of them." Foley confirms it. By far Windows 8's weakest link, so I'm hoping this is true. Especially the Mail application is dreadful.

I sure know I gave Microsoft's vision of how Windows 8 should be used a fair chance for almost a month - until finally one day I couldn't take it anymore.

Now it's business as usual - I've installed a Start Menu replacement that's not as disruptive as the Start Screen and has a decent aggregated search, I boot directly to Desktop and I've disabled the hot corners. I haven't seen the "Modern" crap in weeks.

Modern apps on the desktop don't need to be updated, they need to be killed ... with fire.
