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.

Developers are well taken care of in Windows 8. Microsoft has done a spectacular job with every aspect of the developer story.

Visual Studio 2012 knocks it out of the park. C# is improved dramatically with async/await.

XAML is fast and fluid, first class support from C# and even C++

JS/HTML5 have great tooling alongside XAML in Blend.

Developers are going to love Windows 8, and in fact, I read an article where an Android developer said its no contest, Windows 8 is hands down the better development platform.

The tooling is superior, the languages are superior, and the APIs are conducive to creating a great experience on all form factors. So what exactly is it you're worried about?
