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 realize its your preference, but wouldn't you rather be able to see more results on screen?

You can also pin the actual folder that the "All Programs" reside in from the Start Menu directly to your Taskbar. Then getting a traditional view of your Start Menu's apps is a tap away.

I think that these are very niche scenarios (as Microsoft's usage stats indicate) but nonetheless, anyone who wants to certainly can retain a lot of the old functionality.
