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.

Having a less degraded classic apps experience under Metro will never happened.

Simply because it's a voluntary move.

Microsoft don't want people to keep using classic apps. What they want is people asking Metro apps because classic ones are now crappier to use.
Because Microsoft needs that developers write Metro apps, a way better locked platform on which Microsoft is putting most of his hopes to become back the wealthiest IT company.

And if for that you needs to make people experience a little bit worse, they wont care one bit.

Personnaly, I see nothing in Windows 8 that could motivate me enough to upgrade from... XP.
