Windows "Windows 8.1 RTM will be available for OEM partners in late August. This means OEMs will be able to get the RTM bits and begin preparing devices with Windows 8.1 just in time for the holidays! We’ll have more details to share in the coming months for consumers and other customers on how to get Windows 8.1." So far, Windows 8.1 has been a massive improvement over Windows 8 on my Surface RT - except for the total system crashes (including shrieking sounds) Skype causes a few times per week.

Replacing the Start Screen - button?

Speaking of Windows 8.1 does anyone know if Start8 or Classic Shell or something else is capable of removing the Microsoft-provided Start Screen - button from the taskbar and replacing it with the proper Start Menu - button? It'd look silly to have both of them there, that's why I am asking.
