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.

No, the reason they are right is because the majority agree. They know the majority agree because they asked people and because they used the telemetry (customer experience program) to see how people use the product. You are not the target demographic. You find people who agree with your opinion because you're on a website full of people just like you. Microsoft speak to more people every day than you will in a lifetime, and they listen more than you do. The fact that they put the button back and did almost nothing with the menu is a testament to this.
