    So would you recommend doing it?
    Doesn't hurt the phone. Unless you're desperate for orientation lock or little 'x' on apps to close them there's not much else to it. There's a slight increase in performance. I haven't looked to deeply into the custom ringtones or SMS sound thing as it's not something I was that interested in anyway. I also don't drive to work so I don't have a huge need for Drive Mode.

    Yeah the only thing i would be most interested in is the custom tones its something I have missed for almost 3 years :)

    If this "more tile on one screen" thing was implemented, I'd probably try it out.

    I'm like, won't you try out every new feature that is on GDR 3?

    I agree. I was hoping for the email attachment feature, which isn't present in the preview. So I'm slightly disappointed.

    Don't get me wrong - its good MS are finally releasing things early for developers - just seems like a double edged sword with developer licences being quite cheap 8.1 and GDR3 are available to the masses before they should be - people could feel let down by whats on offer in the upgrades while forgetting that they only have access to the bits a developer would need.

    All in all it just leads to another slew of complaint threads in the forums.

    Oh I agree. I think they should have been a bit more clear what the 'preview' had prior to releasing it. However, you still can't stop stupid people from being stupid. People will complain just because they can.

    Rubino wrote in a comment to one of his articles it's not yet implemented. I think the rumor was it would be released for all phones with a resolution higher than 720p, but it could have been just that, a rumor.

    Without it I really, really don't care about this update.

    All the complaints and eagerness to update does point to one thing though. It does show how desperate people are for more features and a better WP experience.

    I thought there was nothing of interest to developers in GDR3? What other features do you expect for the final update? Everything rumored is in it, except the tile thingy.

    I'm not really sure what I think about an extra small tile. The small tile is small enough. I don't really need an extra column.

    No, there's still things not there. It's a preview. It's about apps being able to run on the new code. I'm not certain of this but I think they may have opened the APIs a touch. Also it allows developers to make apps for the new HD screens. etc.

    Im assuming they would have to add in code for the multitasking X to close along with code for orientation lock - and im sure some bright spark will come up with an app that implements tools from drive mode.

    Well the only thing I like in GDR3 is the ability to close an app on the multitask screen!!! It great saves me pressing back a thousand times!

    They were talking in another thread about a new app which should have been released with GDR3 with new APIs, and that there won't be a developer kit released as there are no new APIs and therefore it doesn't look good for this app.

    I don't know about the truth of this of course.

    I'd like to have smaller tiles, as I'd like to have more big tiles, but don't want to waste the space they need. Medium tiles with more information would be okay too, but I don't think this is going to happen.

    What else should come with GDR3 then? I don't expect any big surprises. Remember this post when the final version will be released, then we'll see ;-)

    I don't get all the commotion over the multitasking closure thing. I very rarely have more than one app open at a time anyway - the only exceptions being when im browsing or playing a game and a text comes in - I will answer the text from the notification but then hit back when im done to go back to what I was doing. I don't see how people manage to have multiple apps open on a repeated basis unless they are just too lazy to hit the back button when they are done with it.

    I have the maximum amount all the time and can go past it if there wasn't a limit and use all the apps at the same time just go back and forth.

    I would also like to have more then 15 background task at least 50 to 100.

    It saves me hitting back a thousand times...
