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.

Windows 8 apps were only optionally full screen - from day one you've had the option of having two apps side by side. This is pretty much the opposite of full screen.

With Windows 8.1 the snapping of apps side by side is variable, and the amount of apps snappable side by side has increased depending on resolution/display size.

With 8.1, a lot of the Windows 7 work flows are now possible with modern apps.
