    Good news Windows 8.1 fans: It looks like you can completely forgo the new Start menu app experience with Windows 10 and stick with the tablet-friendly Start screen instead. This should be welcomed news, especially for those using the Dell Venue 8 Pro, Toshiba Encore, or any other 8-inch Windows 8.1 Intel device; because using the desktop on such a tiny screen, even with the new Windows 10 app support and features, is an exercise in frustration.

    Bad news Windows 8.1 fans: Despite this option, it appears as though app behavior and navigation have completely been altered to favor desktop users.
