Windows I'm swamped with real-world work at the moment, so you'll have to settle for this quickie: the consumer preview for Windows 8 has been released. Go get it and report in what you find!

Where is the X?

I didn't like the Windows 8 GUI, but because I can not use it, not beucase how it look. Im using it on VirtualBox.

If I open any application on the Metro Interface, I can not know how to close it... ok pressing Alt+F4 I can , but what is the natural GUI way to close applications?? Where is the X?

The main GUI window (Metro) do now scroll to the right with the mouse. You require to make a roll over on the bottom and use the scroll bar... why I can not use the mouse as it was the finger?

I really think that the Metro stuff is not thinked for people that use a mouse and keyboard anymore.

After while I understood that the Windows button on the keyboard help you to return to the main Metro interfase, but I still can not find the "X".

This is the future, why do you need to close apps?
