    Ahh. I wondered why my PC took AGES to reboot. Didn't get any notification or anything about it. Just checked and I am on build 9860.

    All hilarity aside, at least Microsoft is making some effort in making their winapp platform semi-usable on the desktop. This is the direction they should have went 2 years ago.

    At least two things have gone backwards, snapping windows to corners at quarter size has gone and the min/max, open/close animations are awful now.

    How is Win+Shift+Arrow new? I can do that on Windows 7?!?

    Win+Arrow moves the Window half a screen width at a time and Win+Shift+Arrow moves it from one to the next...
