Once the desktop is gone from RT, MS should rebrand it as the Surface OS...maybe not.
How about Metro OS?
Then they'll have to change the store name too. Oh, nevermind.

About time. I only used the RT desktop for creating folders on my microSD card for Xbox Music and Videos, and photos, occasionally checking/applying Windows updates, and using Word once or twice...

He said, "Windows 8.1 RT" not Window RT 8.1. Ooo, I hate that too.

Finally, I got the upgrade process going.

But, Microsoft can't make entertaining but informative ads for Windows 8/RT and Windows Phone 8.

That's my complaint. Nokia nor Microsoft show off the features of WP8. Enough dancing and poking fun at the competition. Microsoft and Nokia have great products in Lumia and WP8, but the general...

winkwink, some people shouldn't blink, because it appears they missed the Outlook drop down icon in the user interface that reveals Mail, People, Calendar, and SkyDrive.

I guess Microsoft...

red77star, your name says it all - not too bright on this subject, but fired up to incorrectly blame this issue on Windows 8/RT/Tablets.

This is a LOOONG running Windows annoyance P-E-R-I-O...

You sound old and stuck in your ways: I was born in 1966 btw. ;-)

If Apple did this, the UI would be brilliant and evolutionary. I'm typing this from within Windows 8 on IE10 on my desktop...
