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.

The easiest way to fix it is.....just don't use Windows 8!

Seriously why in the world are you going to all the trouble to run a cell phone OS on the desktop? its obvious that all MSFT cares about with Win 8 is wimpy little screens or it wouldn't be such a PITB to get it usable on large displays.

So do yourself a favor friend, join me and most of the business world (as well as all my customers) and just say NO! to Win 8. heck with Win 7 supported until 2020 you can skip win 8 AND Win 9 if MSFT doesn't come to their senses, But I have a feeling this is gonna be an MS Bob level of fail so I doubt we'll have long to wait until Win 9 goes back to a sensible desktop.

Many people laughed when I said "Vista is gonna flop" and that came true and I'm betting I'm right again, its just not an improvement over Win 7 unless you are running it on a smartphone and even there I don't think it has a prayer against Android and iOS.
