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 have a 23-inch display, but for some reason have gotten into the habit of browsing in fullscreen mode (I don't know why; I would've been appalled to do so a few years ago). Anyway, Microsoft's data shows that the overwhelming majority of folks use their apps maximized, so they're already used to seeing large unused space to the left and right of a webpage's content.

I only have Firefox maximized, almost everything else I like to keep in smaller windows that are easy to move around as needed. But then again, there's two good reasons for having my browser like that: I like to be able to see as much of the content as possible, and I view pictures quite often and thus I would lose on the details if I had the browser non-maximized and the picture was downscaled.
