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.

"To see the rest of the screen, obviously."

No, it's not obvious at all. If you want to see the screen don't press start. If you want to find a file, web page, app or setting then press start and get on with business. I can't imagine how bad you'd have to be at computing to be using the start menu for more than about 5 seconds, and I'm sure even you can go without the porno for 5 seconds?!
