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.

I don't think hiding the control panel (or whatever it's equivalent will be) in a consumer preview is a great idea. By this point, I assume they're fixing bugs and the big issues have been sorted out. It's not an internal beta after all. It's not even a developer preview. I expect hardware support gotchas and even bugs with their web services listed on the start screen, but i think they should have the OS layout effectively done by now.

I have to admit I didn't spend a lot of time looking and found a workaround to get to it from the desktop view. I loaded the display properties and then went up to the main category list and then got to the device list. It had detected everything except a proprietary smbus and the sound card correctly on my Intel DP65LT motherboard.


They didn't hide it very well. Place the mouse cursor to the right side of the screen, the Bar shows itself, and click on the gear for settings, then select Control Panel. A different way to get to it, but not hidden by any means.
