Windows So, I've been using the Windows 8 Release Preview since it came out, almost exclusively (except for work, since I'm obviously not going to rely on unfinished and untested software for that). I already knew I could get into Metro on my 11.6" ZenBook, but on my 24" desktop, things aren't looking as rosy. Here's an illustrated guide of the most pressing issues I run into, and five suggestions to address them. Instead of just complaining, let's get constructive.

I can't understand how using Metro can be productive. It's beyond my comprehension. From what I've tested so far it is one, huge joke. The worst thing - however - is that you practically have no choice if you're Windows user. It's just forced down your throat and there's nothing you can really do about it.
It reminds me of Unity and Gnome3 in *nix worlds, but there - at least - you have a choice of plentora of other desktops. Windows doesn't give you any choice [and let's not call this "Windows Classic mode" a valuable alternative, please ... It doesn't seem to be one].
