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.

Nelson,

"There is a choice. Metro has a Desktop, and if you really want, 90% of the time you do not have to be in Metro. A fact lost on you, Thom, and a few others who like to be selective with facts."

There is simply no good excuse for not giving us a choice to revert the desktop changes. Microsoft just lacks the confidence to let metro stand on it's own merit, which is why microsoft has been busy trying to make desktop workflows worse instead.
