you think that Metro Thing is just a visual overlay in Windows? It's not - there is a new API and the store thing... this explains also your "2 update disable" problem. What would you do instead of MS? Go with the API from 1986 forever and put another wrapper arround it, or just let the buissness users go with all there legacy in-house apps.? .. Ya' the start button - Sleepy | :zzz:
