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.

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.

So basically you've turned your Windows 8 into Windows 7!

Don't get me wrong, after first seeing Windows 8 I refuse to install it on anything I will be using alot, I find it counter productive and much prefer the way Windows 7 handles things.

Yup, it's a faster Windows 7 with a few tweaks here and there.
