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!

That's not constructive in any way. You do not fix something just by ignoring it, just as you cannot e.g. fix murder by ignoring it.

Seriously why in the world are you going to all the trouble to run a cell phone OS on the desktop?

Quite a few of the commenters here on OSNews work in IT, and as such they'll inevitably run into situations where they must be able to get around in Win8 and/or help others do that. That's already a very good reason for trying to get acquainted with it already.

Another good reason would be e.g. studying it; what works, what doesn't, how it could be improved and/or what could be imitated elsewhere and what shouldn't.

Then again, if you don't like being constructive you probably don't understand the reasoning anyways.

unless you are running it on a smartphone and even there I don't think it has a prayer against Android and iOS.

You'll be surprised.
