Windows 8.1 Update 1 Preview: Hands-on

Hey they finally started to read the preview release comments, and websites criticizing Win 8 almost two years ago. About damn time. The shutdown menu was under settings on the charms bar, talk about illogical, and stupid.

I don't see anything wrong with providing shutdown menu options in different locations. So Windows 8 had it under charms > settings and Windows 8.1 had it under charms > settings as well as the start button via right click. Adding to the start menu probably won't go amiss since its a logical place to put it (in addition to the other locations 8 / 8.1).
However, many people already try to avoid the Windows 8 / 8.1 start screen so its of no benefit to people of that mindset.
Its a subtle change either way.
I'm OK with it,....
Looking forward to any/all changes. Funny, on 8.1 I never think to rmb on lower left corner for exits. lol Desktop use 95% of time but do switch modes so charms seemed more natural if anything is that in 8/8.1

These look like nice small enhancements. We needed some of these to help with non-touch based systems and desktop style working environments. I see no reason both shouldn't coexist and be setup for differing priorities. As touch hardware evolves and modern UI apps improve people will migrate over (except those with a death grip on XP).
