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.

If MS won't put a setting that disables Metro ENTIRELY, their new O.S. will never take off. For the first time I (and I'm sure many others) are seriously looking at several corporate-backed Linux distro's for our computer needs. Enough is enough! >:|


You can I think. Just change the register key RPEnabled under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explo rer to 0. I haven't tried this myself though.

Although I guess this option could be removed from the final release.
