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.

If you're using any browser that isn't Chrome, yes, it does impact CPU time.

When I'm on JavaScript heavy sites on my mini-laptop (1.2 Core 2 Duo, FWIW), I can hear the CPU fan ramping up significantly, and the machine gets more sluggish. CPU fan ramping up means it's not a RAM issue (the HDD indicator would be on, for swapping, which I also see often).
