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.

Microsoft's improvements of their codebase may be tangible. But the Core2 Quad test machine I have running Windows 8 not only "feels" significantly slower than the i7 rig running Windows 7 right next to it, but bechmarks much poorer as well. And that's not only totally expected, but I would have seriously suspected Microsoft had managed to break some law of physics if the situation had been reversed.
