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.

I personally prefer the new flat look, and the desktop experience with 3rd party add ons (I like Pokki) is alright.

Frankly the desktop now looks much better than under previous iterations of Windows, which tended to clash with my own personal sense of aesthetics. However, I think the flat look does not lend itself well to the touch experience.
