    First, I think Microsoft killed it today. One of the best keynotes I've ever watched and I love the direction they are heading.

    But.... They left me with a couple unanswered questions, maybe somebody knows the answers or somebody else has the same questions.

    All of these questions have to do with the latter half of the keynote when they talked about the future they showed off the start menu with modern apps built in:

    1. When is this available?
    2. Does the replace the current start menu? And if so how would that work on tablets?

    I think that's more of a Windows Phone question. You'd probably be better off posting them in the Windows Phone 8.1 forum.

    Apparently the WP 8.1 update will support this for cards that are at least Class 6.

    The update will be generally available on next Tuesday. If you have MSDN it is available now.

    The new start menu shown is for a further update due at a later date. If it is like some of the new functionality in this Update 1, then it the behaviour may change depending on your type of device. As an example the power button on the screen does not show if your device is a tablet to prevent accidental logouts. Also the menu bar in the modern apps won't appear unless you have a mouse connected, but will appear on tablets and PCs.

    this is a windows 8 forum, not windows phone 8, but from what I've read, the windows phone 8.1 dev preview will not be available til around april 14.

    My only question about the Windows 8.1 Update is how to revert it back. The changes they did to appease the ***** desktop users are awful.

    You can't. And if you want future updates, you'll get it.
