Windows Okay, so this one actually bothers me quite a deal in the Windows 8 consumer preview: the fonts in Metro look fuzzy - they look like fonts on Mac OS X. Because of the Mac OS X resemblance, I had assumed that Metro switched to a shape-accurate rendering method, like Mac OS X uses, but as it turns out, it's a little less exotic than that.

Use search on the Start menu/screen. I've been typing "Device Manager" since Vista. (Or actually, "Dev" is enough.)

Ever since Device Manager and a lot of the other cpanel applets got buried one level down from the main UI, I've found it more efficient to search for them by typing, than to actually go around looking for them. Now that it's buried three levels down in Windows 8, this habit has paid off.

The same is true of Network Adapters, and all sorts of other cpanel applets that keep getting moved around.
