is there an "official" ISO for this build by chance? I downloaded the official download ISO 9431. I'm getting used to the UI now. My wife and kids love Windows 8

Wait for the RTM build only if MS allows us to download.

Come on Microsoft and release 8.1 already! You can sort out any bugs after its released. I am in dire need of the boot to desktop. I call 8.1, Windows 8 Mistakes Fixed Edition  :D

What exactly is the big issue with boot to desktop, it's literally 1 click, or a press of the space bar if you put "Desktop" as your top left tile.

I understand, but i have used windows almost since the beginning, and I cant take not having what windows has always done for 18 years. It is a pain having to click that tile everytime i boot the computer up. I just want windowss to go to the desktop by itself and not have to run back to the computer to click on the desktop tile. Its like, waking up in the morning, you start the computer, go make coffee, then have to run back to click the desktop tile and then go back. I dont understand Microsoft's rationale for removing btd in the first place, other than to cause mass annoyance.
