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.

Apparently, they've given all the senior managers full frontal lobotomies, and those results must have looked so outstanding that they required the rest of their staff to have them, as well.

Well, at least it's good to know we'll have Windows 8 and 8-point-1 around; this way, if any of us run out of toilet paper, we'll always have Windows 8-point-whatever to wipe our . . . well, you get the idea, I hope.

Seriously, it looks like an operating system designed for six-year-olds--and, apparently, for six-year-olds who can read the system designers' minds to be able to find all these magical control interfaces.
