I did not know about either of those, I've only used it once, and have hated it since. Why take something as simple as typing 2 keys or clicking 2x to shut down a computer to taking a mouse move waiting for a window to appear, then clicking 2 or 3 more times to do the same functionality. I tried Windows 8 when it first came out which is why I didn't know about these other things that came out in 8.1. It's about efficiency.

Interesting.. so everything you dislike about it is based off a brief, release candidate, trial run and that's that?

Spoiler


The efficiency is still there.

Perhaps spin it up in a VM and poke around with it.. watch the hansleman videos I linked about "where's my cheese"..

... or not.. Honestly I could care less whatcha sport for an OS when I am looking at supersloth's fly red kicks!

I may take a look when I get home, I'm always willing to give software another shot if given reason to.

The mouse-move-to-the-bottom-right version of that was in fact in 8.0, as well as in the last RC release. I used it all the time in both versions. (I dual-boot a lot.)

One annoyance when dual-booting Win8, though, is that a "Shut Down" is in fact a hibernate. I always had to Reboot in order for the NTFS drives to be available in Linux, since they will be "locked" if a dual-booted Windows isn't shut down properly.
