Sorry to burst your bubble guys, but the new start menu and floating metro apps on the desktop are coming later, not on April 8th. :whistler:

You can open Start8 or ModernMix and go to "About" and check for updates. That is how I do it. Both of mine are up to date.

Is your start8 version 1.4?

It is now, I ran a check for updates and it downloaded the 1.4 version installer. Prior to that I think I had v1.2.

My ModernMix didn't need an update, I updated it to v1.12 a while ago.

Good deal did you read about Modern Mix, they said there should be a update before 8.1 update 1 is released, they better hurry!

Just got the 8.1 update 1 installed along with 28 other updates (most for office 2013), seems to be working fine, I uninstalled Modern Mix first, with this update it does everything that Modern Mix did except it won't let you resize the modern apps, its either full screen or off.:thumb::<

Got it on 2 out 3 machines so far and everything seems fine! Downloaded it on the last one now! Working good on the last one too!

So, is it really necessary to uninstall MordernMix before getting it?

There's a ModernMix beta (1.14) available for 8.1 update 1:
