Windows 8.1 RTM is nearly here and Microsoft is continuing to work hard adding polish and improvements to the operating system. The Verge has obtained a copy of the latest leaked build and taken it for a test spin, so if you are curious about the latest round of changes, then here is your opportunity to see what is new!

Am I the only one who thinks that the Mordern UI actually looks nice now?

The only problem that I have ever run into with the Modern UI/Start Screen is keeping the number of apps displayed down to just what was visible on the screen in order to avoid the whole scrolling issue. ^_^
Outside of that, I have not minded the Modern UI at all and have not added any Start Menu apps to my Win 8 installations. ^_^

Polish will be no more understandable than the double Dutch currently employed.
Open sourcing would be the best improvement that could be made.
W8 is actually approaching a usable o/s - removing the need for third-party security bloat would make it adequate.
