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.

Metro issue or not

I wont get into the Metro debate too much, since I have stated my opinions on it before. However; even if you don't view the situation with full-screen webpages as ideal you should certainly view it as a challenge to make OSnews use the space it gets in the most efficient way possible. A specific CSS setup for wide displays, perhaps reflowing it in the horizontal column layout that this setup favors.

It shouldn't be a huge undertaking, and would probably look better on a fair number of other devices as well. It is a bit backwards to complain that the operating system is providing OSnews with more space than it expects ;)
