I don't see any differences yet. May be most of the change is going to be from inside, which does not matter a lot. I will only be interested in this if they bring start menu back and get rid of metro crap. Keep this metro crap to surface tablet only.

Looks like they added the arrow at the bottom as a way to go to the all apps list, same thing they have on WP, though if you're on touch you can just swipe up to go to it as well.

If that's what the arrow is for, the placement seems pretty odd. I hope it's not final.

How about giving people a choice?

Perhaps they are adding the start screen button and the boot to desktop option in the final release!

Agreed. Despite what some people say, the majority of people want the start menu or at least the option to use it. If 8.1 has an official start menu, I'd likely upgrade from 7. I realize there's tons of third party ways to do it but I don't really want to use a third party app for something as simple as the start menu.

What is windows 8.1 exactly, is it going to be a free download for windows 8 users, or is it a whole another os that you pay for??

Windows doesn't need a notification center. If you're fearful of missing something, keep an eye on the tiles, or set your toast to display longer.
