You're definitely not going to like "toast" then.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I tested out a previously leaked build of 8.1 just before it hit RTM and I just hated the fact that the Computer icon is changed to "This PC" and displays my User folder content in there. I just started raging right away xD

Though now with 8.1 looking better than ever, I wish I jumped on that bandwagon and upgraded 7 to 8 at a cheap price. Now I doubt I'll have the money to buy a license because I just know that if I test out the RTM build (which I'm downloading right now) I'd want to keep it... Sigh...

Things seem to be a little faster today, maybe Windows has to get comfortable To think that if you didn't buy 8.0, 8.1 is not a free upgrade.

You have to try ModernMix so you can run Windows8 Tile apps on the Desktop it is the best. Now I can upgrade to FireFox for Windows8 and not have to switch to the Windows8 Tile Screen to run it

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7600

if you add start 8 into the mix then you can launch your progs from the start menu, or create a taskbar toolbar with shortcuts to your most used programs.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate SP1

I solved my ''connect to the internet on W 8.1'' problem. However, it required so much ingenuity and cunning I'm going to have contact Brink right now because that tutorial of great importance requires a tutorial expert to be written properly and didactically. I have neither the time nor the skill, just a .bat script, a Task Scheduler task and knowledge how to set them up.

So 8.1 stays on my Windows 8 experimental computer. Heck, I did buy a key, silly me. My main computer, however, won't taste a whiff of it. And this solution above is not for a computer that changes network setups, so I will not even update IE11 on my favorite Win 7 system, 'cause it shares the same flaw.

I bought start 8 when I first installed Windows 8, then just before 8.1 came out I also bought ModernMix & Decor 8. With Decor 8 I could change the tile color to my liking in Windows 8 but that feature was removed in Windows 8.1 and most of the other features of Decor 8 are also natively available making Decor 8 a fairly useless program unless it can be further improved.

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1

I bought W8 when MS had it on a special offer. I have the ISO and key but never installed it. Can you download a W8.1 ISO in case one day I ever want to install it ? Or do you need to install W8 then go through the upgrade process? Thanks.
