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.

We Windows developers have been complaining on the MSDN blogs. The overwhelming opinion is negative.

The feedback has not been overwhelmingly negative as you suggest, in fact, gathering something like that purely from comments on a blog (With no guarantee on the technical background of any said commenter) is intellectually dishonest.

This OS SUCKS for anyone who uses more than a browser.

Why doesn't Sinofsky allow Metro to be a choice? Because he knows that he can only force it on the market, it's not good enough to stand alone on merit.

I suppose you're entitled to your opinion, I just respectfully disagree. In my own use, I've found it to be useful for me, and I use it for more than a browser, so I question the wisdom of what you say.

P.S. I own a Windows Phone and like it so please keep the retarded "ur just afraid of change" defense out of this. I somehow wasn't afraid of Metro in WP7 but detest how it is used in Windows 8. Metro in WP7 makes sense but in Windows 8 it is shoved down your throat. Dumping a bunch of icons onto the desktop is not more efficient than a folder tree-view, I kind of thought that was common sense.

That's nice.
