Sadly.. I was really hoping that 8.1 would be better. After using it for a few hours, I'm glad It wasn't a paid upgrade. Definitely not worth it. It's still extremely annoying to use. Gets in the way of what I want to do. I hate it. Seriously microsoft.. the Win2000 and Win 2003 interface, you had it right then and there. Simple. Looking forward to finding another O/S .. I'm done with constantly boxing with my spare machine.
