I upped the multiplier on my 1080p 10" laptop. However, when I remote desktop into another machine, everything is tiny! Will this get fixed as well?

& yet it fails to address Windows 8 2 biggest Hate Points: Return of Start Button/Menu, & Boot to Desktop, Bypassing that lame Metro UI. & No, it most likely wont be free. Windows 8 was intended to mimic Apples "Charge per update" model. So Don't be surprised if there is a fee attached to this update.

While I am glad that MS is attempting to fix some of the things that are wrong with 8, I still won't be buying it, and will still recommend to those I know to skip it.

Perfect! This alone is worth the upgrade for me. (I skipped 8 though.) Looks like my next machine will have a really high-res screen then.

If they charge for it then they should expect some real serious backlash.

Free? Are you saying that a needed series of fixes for 8 coming out just a few months after the OS itself came out might not be a free upgrade? Nah, I cannot imagine that.

I wonder if Blue will implement a scrolling down option for metro, as opposed to scrolling left to right. It'd be great for vertically oriented tablets.

Not to mention, vertical scrolling is easier for people to remember when using a mouse. None of that "up for left, down for right" crap.
