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.

That space certainly isn't wasted.


Exactly, I agree. I prefer seeing other windows (even if just a relevant part of them) than not, or ven notification balloons and such if they exist. E.g. doing a remote linux upgrade and seeing the bottom part of the console window, an IM window on the side, an app window or its console output of a running program that needs a lot of time to run and meanwhile has visual or text output, and so on and so forth.

Obviously I'm not in the content-consuming-only target demographic, and being in a browser window during work is not my main activity. Thinking about it, I'd say the only app types that I use full screen are developer IDEs, everything else I use in windowed mode.
