Considered it, but you need to fuck with the Windows Store App to download it. Also the server my win8 is authenticated off isn't even an official MS server, so I'd need some actual good reasons to upgrade before I can be bothered

Start button is useless. But boot to desktop native is pretty sweet. Have a hunt around in the settings and turn off all the times it wants you to chuck in a password and it almost acts like a normal computer.

Since I refuse to sign up for a hotmail account to use my computer I don't have access to the shop either. But I managed to grab the update from the microsoft website easy as.

oh, that would be why I can't access the shop. I can't find the update on the website, it just redirects me to the store :/

I just had a quick look, but can't seem to track down the page again, either. Weird.

Yeah, getting used to no start button was like unlearning brain damage, but I don't even give a fuck now, but boot to desktop... Yeah maybe.
