    Thanks for that video showing it working, was tempted to try but didn't want to brick my install

    Early days yet for this feature, but it doesn't look very touch friendly at the moment

    Thanks, Edwin.

    That's Continuum? That's the Start Menu. Howz that going to work with a human finger? MS must be out of their gourd if that's it!

    From what I've read, the start menu (I removed all of the tiles from mine) is supposed to expand/contract according to user preference. This ideally would mean that the start menu (with/wo tiles) can either be a traditional start menu or it can be an 8.x-ish start page, complete with tiles, based purely upon user preference. We shall see...

    Cheers, really looking forward to seeing this feature, it seems like a lot of work is need for touch devices

    The above would not work very well for small screen devices

    I am hoping its going to be more than just a larger version of the start menu stuck on the desktop

    Yeah, it's not much to look at yet. The expansion arrows presumably make it go full screen but for which devices?
    Somebody with a Windows tablet should try it out!
    ('Groot' must be the guy workin on it. I think he needs to work a little harder at it )
