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.

It's a button, yeah, but I would hardly call it a "Start button" when it doesn't even bring up the expected "Start menu." And except on phones, tablets and other small touchscreen-based systems, the "Start screen" is no replacement for a traditional mouse-driven menu on larger, high-resolution screens.
