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.

and any serious use of the OS over and above passive consumption


While that seems to be the case at this point, I doubt thay'd want to do that, that would be suicide. The consumer-only user base is pretty large, that's true, but surviving only on them - without the enterprise market and the associated developer base - doesn't sound very realistic. If they'd drop everything and go fully for a consumer-centric OS, that could be the largest win imaginable for iOS and Android (and for Ubuntu on the desktop as well).
