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.

What is the difference if it's full screen or not, when you focus on a webpage? It's a "wasted" space either way


It's not. I can put my icons there, so I can quickly open them. I can put an IM window there, IRC, mail, a copy dialog, Torrent, whatever I want. This way, I can quickly switch between tasks without having to jump through hoops. It makes it much easier to see what I'm doing, and keep track of everything that's running. And I haven't even mentioned yet that without the ability to display multiple windows side-by-side, I can't actually do my job and make money. THAT is how backwards Metro currently really is.

That space certainly isn't wasted.
