    Has anyone actually seen this turn up on retail Windows yet? Or is this all pre-writing from people with Technet access?

    Re: News - Windows 8.1 Update 1 arrives

    If Update 1 is KB2919355, then I've got it. Not sure what it brings but hey...

    Edit - If I right-click on Metro tiles, I get a context menu instead of the things at the bottom of the screen. Is there anything else?

    Metro apps get listed in the main Windows taskbar, not just in their own taskbar. And you can pin Metro apps there for quick launch. And Metro apps have close/minimize buttons. That's the main ones.
