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.

The ISO is now available. I just installed it in VirtualBox.

I'm happy to report that Classic Shell (classicshell.sf.net) runs correctly, suppressing most of the Metro bullshit, and giving the users the choice of a more desktop-friendly interface.
