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.

I would hardly call it fluff, but then again you tend to make blanket statement about subjects like there is a "right and a wrong" ... it is a visual aid, nothing more or less, you either think it has value or it doesn't, I happen to think that it does.

Performance degrading ... utter nonsense. You really don't know how these websites are built do you?

You do realise that must of this stuff is done Asynchronously so it doesn't block the browser?

"People can't multitask very well, and when people say they can, they're deluding themselves," said neuroscientist Earl Miller. And, he said, "The brain is very good at deluding itself."

Miller, a Picower professor of neuroscience at MIT, says that for the most part, we simply can't focus on more than one thing at a time.

And when it comes to multi-tasking, I will take the word of a MIT professor over your opinion anyday.
