Love it - with a caveat

Windows 8.1 is the best OS from MS yet, well, the kernel at least. However, the interface is awful, worse than even Vista.

But there's a solution: with Windows 8.1 plus "Start8" from www.stardock.com (costs $5 after your first month's free trial) it's the perfect solution. I now have windows 7 look and feel with all the benefits of the Win 8.1 kernel.

There are several other free "Win7 menu replacement" options, one that I've tried is called "StartMenu8" however, it doesn't scale suitably on high resolution screens. Start8 does, and looks perfect on a 4K screen.

Roland.
