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.

NT -> 2000 -> XP -> Vista -> 7

All introduced changes and new ways of doing certain things, whether it was the control panel, start menu, task bar, toolbars on the task bar, active desktop, oh, and Explorer. God damn, Explorer changes a lot. Each required learning to find all the new "magical control interfaces."

That's what happens when stuff changes, when new features are added. There are never, ever, any new features that require ZERO learning. To think otherwise is naive at best, and completely idiotic at worst.
