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 think its hard to argue with the overwhelming amount of statistics and rationale they provided for why they changed things in Windows 8. Their blog posts are immense thickets of words that pretty transparently explain their thought process.

Can you show me the statistics where customers liked loosing a feature that they were actively using? And can you show me the statistics that show having the option between the startscreen and the startmenu is bad?

Think about this: what would have happened if you could download the old startmenu in MS appstore?
