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.

Notes and LibreOffice are making the need to use windows less and less.

Lotus Notes? You poor, poor thing... ;)

Even those masters of the RDF, Apple didn't force OSX onto their users. The kept MacOS-9 going for sometime after the introduction of OSX. will MS learn a lesson here?

How are the downgrade rights that MS gives worse, and what MS needs to additionally learn? (plus, with MS those are good operating systems, at least on a technical level - Apple kept not-very-good OS9 available because OSX itself was a pig for at least the first two releases, and large part of essential Mac software ran only on OS9 - well, or in Classic under OSX, making it even more of a pig / overhead)
And with largish employer / company, it's not about individual licenses but more or less subscription to any MS OS you want, anyway.


WRT RDF - come on, we're talking about a movement which refused to pirate OS8, bought en masse a substandard product to ~"help save Apple" ( http://www.forbes.com/1997/08/08/column.html ) ...hard to beat that one.
