Windows Microsoft has released the Windows 8.1 preview for download, but they region-locked it to 13 specific languages, and Dutch is not one of them. So, even though my Surface RT has been completely and utterly English from the day I bought it, I can't install Windows 8.1 and tell you something about it. Those of you who can download it, why don't you tell us what it's like - or you can head to The Verge who got early access. In case you couldn't tell, I'm a little annoyed that we're arbitrarily being left out once again.

Start Button Useless??

Looks like they've added the start button, but it appears to just bring you to the Metro overlay/home screen. (See 1:10 in the preview video.) Way to make the jarring Windows 8 "START" experience more accessible via mouse.

Lame sauce.

Can someone who downloads this please confirm?
