Windows "Microsoft has greatly improved its Windows 8 multiple monitor support in the Consumer Preview version of the operating system, but the company has fine tuned this even more with the upcoming Release Preview. Mark Yalovsky, a member of Microsoft's User Experience team, has taken to the company's Building Windows 8 blog to detail a number of important improvements in the Release Preview, including improved mouse targeting on shared edges and the ability to launch Metro apps on any monitor. Although the post in question has been mysteriously removed by Microsoft, we managed to secure the details thanks to a Google cached version." Very welcome.

This was my one big gripe.

This was my one big gripe with the consumer preview. I hate the hot corners thing. When I was a mac user I always assigned expose, which is an awesome feature, to a key sequence. I can't wait to try it and I'm really hoping that they have un-fsck'd the targeting.

They are also adding back colors to VS11, but keeping the available dark theme.

I'm really looking forward to this.

If you guys have spent time with it you should take a look at the new server os. Server 2012 is the most advanced thing I have used since OpenVMS. Light years ahead of other systems...AND they finally added the things that make sense for admin'ing a large number of systems. (Stuff that Unix and VMS have been doing since before I was born.)
