Windows "The new changes include several new lock-screen images, the Windows Store tile is now green, and the small magnifying glass in the bottom right corner when you scroll has changed to a simple square. While nothing major, they are representative of the across-the-board tweaks we expect to see when the Release Preview hits the digital shelves in June." So, nothing to address the core issues with Windows 8's mouse/keyboard-hostile environment. Sad.

It's not mouse or keyboard hostile...

It works perfectly fine with a mouse and keyboard, anybody who has ever used a mouse and a keyboard won't like it at first, but it works, and after awhile, you get used to it.

It is broken, however, as soon as you plug in your second monitor, then that damn "charm" bar on the right hand side of your metro monitor is almost eye-stabbingly frustrating to use with a mouse, as it pops up when you are trying to mouse over to the desktop monitor, and you constantly miss it when you want to activate it, your mouse happily scoots over to the desktop.

I don't even know how it'll work with more than one, I only have two. Either way, it's broken. But saying it's mouse and keyboard hostile is hyperbole, at the very least.
