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.

.NET is used more often for new software but most in-house is Win32 by inertia. Win32 isn't dead but .NET is certainly more popular for new projects.

Windows 7 polled well early on but the early feedback on Windows 8 is negative.

You and Sinofsky can live in denial but this OS is going to flop. The polls are dead on, Windows 8 sucks. Enterprise is going to be livid when they are asked to pay for this.

This will be worse than Vista.
