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.

How to fix Windows 8

There is nothing we can do but hope that enterprise screams loudly enough before this piece of crap releases.

Developers on MSDN blogs have been asking to make metro optional but Sinfosky just goes off into bullshit tangents about "evolution of design" or "convergence" instead of answering simple questions like how is the start screen more efficient than the start menu? or can't we already get weather updates on gadgets? The guy is a Steve Jobs wannabe who thinks he knows best but unlike Jobs has no sense of design.

We will probably have to wait and watch this train wreck before ballmer realizes that losing billions from enterprise in the hope of getting pennies on the dollar for tablet sales isn't such a good idea.
