    Very exciting features are been shown but would they all be available come release day? I like the approach Microsoft is taking by making more of the platform.

    From what I've read so far it is a step toward a single OS that will cross the gap between Windows 8.1, WinRT, and WP8. That would be the logical evolution in my mind.

    Is that what Windows 9 is supposed to bring to fruition?

    Will wait and see till we see the final build + apps updated for WP8.1. Too early to judge right now. Plus all of what we saw today was developer related stuff. I'm no dev.

    Exciting to hear that WP will finally come into a competition, it always lacked of features, now it's time to rise

    Sadly that there isn't cortana as of yet which wouldn't be just a "basic" feature

    Is it just me or does Rich's avatar reminds one of Forrest Gump? (no offense Rich). ;)

    as long as they fix the duplicate picture and music issue on SD card it's a good update. though annoyed at how long its taken to patch something so simplistic.

    I'm amazed at the sheer amount of improvement the leakers indicated-- I can't wait to get 8.1! Sweet, sweet feature parity...

    I see no resemblance to Forrest Gump aside from maybe the haircut. I'm in the military and most of us have that same haircut, so I wouldn't associate it with that character.

    More importantly, he's holding a pint of bitter or something and that is a +1 in my book.

    What is that brew Rich?

    I'm excited that OneDrive will allow Co-Authors of folders! My wife and I share photo folders that go all the way back to 2004, but since the reside on my SkyDrive and they are only Shared with her, she cannot select them as a folder as I can on her devices. So, that will be an immediate improvement that has kind of irked me. Same will help with music.

    Although I don't play Halo, I think the Cortana idea is excellent. Not until I listened to the last WPCentral Podcast did I understand the reference, but that alone could be a huge selling point to some folks looking to switch from Android. I have folks that sitting my car that are amazed by the Bluetooth voice technology whenever I text or call someone without taking my hands off the wheel (I'm sure their iphones and droids would do the same if they knew how to hook it up). I can only imagine what they would do if the voice sounded like something out of Halo. They'd probably ask me to drive them to the nearest retailer to trade in their inferior phones :)

    Are virtual buttons included in the SDK? If not, could they possibly be included in the actual update? I'm really looking forward to virtual buttons but I didn't see any forum posts about this yet (I didn't look too hard though).

    We need more polished redesign of whole OS! With that and a few more features it will be a great platform.

    it happens when you don't unmount your SD Card before switching off and removing it. Because of not unmounting a copy of sd Card contents for fast access by OS remains in the other storage. And on top of that another copy of the same gets created again when you insert the micro SD Card.

    So nnext time unmount the micro SD Card before removing it by going into the settings.

    Unfortunately the duplicate copies can't be deleted. Now you need to reset your phone to correct it.

    Well, this is only background pic, I don't mean only on that. We need redesign/refresh on a menu, tiles, etc.

    I don't want to change menu at all, I just want better view of menu items, not to scroll so much. I want nicer icons, thats it.

    The menu should be improved from list view to a very nice, well designed grid view.

    This update feels like what WP8 should have been out of the gate. I am excited to see the update and see how it works in practice. There are only a few features that we are missing to be in par with the other OS's.

    Now MS needs to find the features that separate WP from the pack. Cortana, imaging, etc need to be what gives WP the ability to win some market share.
