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.

That is the start menu though. Anyone expecting a non full screen little menu has obviously not done enough reading on the reasons for the change in the first place. They won't back down on the full screen start menu because they are right about full screen being better. The whole point of it is more room for search results!
