Well I finally installed all the new apps for win8 on my win8 OS. Well done and thanks for all the hard work you all did. Must say it looks great except for the shutdown text on the log off button. Hopefully a fix will be made for this. Now all I have to do is hope I can install Microsoft office 2010 on win8.

I was okey but please change back to the old icon the new one is ugly as hell(like Win8 to) and for next update add a better skin overview(aka smaller tumbs and more on one page)
Otherwise good.
