It sounds like the fresh paint update for windows blue is being done to take advantage of updated or new bits in winrt. All in all it's becoming one of the more bigger apps out there.

It should be free for Windows 8 users but I expect them to run another offer for anyone on XP and Windows 7 again. As far as what desktop users get I dunno, we haven't seen enough yet.

Try this in build 9364: windows\system32\; double click "SlideToShutdown.exe" (or enter it in search->apps and launch)........ :)

And, if you are waiting for x64? Maybe, or maybe not, who knows? :cry:

Seems like a bunch of common sense changes and things that should of been in Windows 8 to begin with.

Yea, but just shows that Win8 was half assed and not complete when released. Especially since they started working on Blue so quickly. Probably would of been a better release if they included all of this to begin with. People would still complain about things ,but not as much. And this better be a FREE update.

probably not the best idea to admit A) Piracy and B) Activating via a fake KMS service.

I wouldn't have the nerve to post it in Neowin, but when win8 RTM there was a report in Neowin News about the same thing(btw, the pic on that report was also from my PC). So I guess it's OK if I cover the "infos" on the screen-shots. :)
