From what I can so far is you can only have one window open at a time, but I don't see a problem with that.
Six Screens?? I would love to see a picture of your setup.

Hi there
Never mind the rest of the stuff -- I'd LOVE the 110" screen -- but I think you'd need about 3 X the resolution of Current 1080p full HD to do it justice.

Cheers

Gee can I come over to your place?! I could use the room to expand on things here!

Only one windowed mode for one app only? That stinks! You would think they would have at least allowed for a few apps since the program fits the bill for Metro or "Modern" apps depending on what MS wants them called. The idea works however!

Hmm! Maybe I am missing something here. I have three apps opened by Modern Mix in there own windows right now. Calendar, Weather and Mahjong.

I always thought Classic Shell was the Cats Meow and with the addition of Modern Mix I am a happy camper with Win 8.

with the 3rd party apps I would be worried that MS provides an service pack or some patch and all of sudden they mess up the system or don't work anymore. I wish MS would offer an official version, even for $5. But then you knew it doesn't cause problems. There also is the issue that IT departments likely won't allow people to install such addons. At my work everyone of my PC problems will get blamed on software I installed (even blaming Autodesk etc..... like playing solitaire is the only thing I'm supposed to with with a PC...)

That's good news at least! I see it's one of those apps you have to toy around with for a bit until you finally are able to get it to work right.

The present version is still in beta form which would explain some of that however. It's still not on the list of programs in their knowledge base section under Stardock's Software at this time for that reason.
