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.


I would argue that the option of having a maximum of two apps side by side is right over there next to having a maximum of one app full screen.

The opposite of both is a windowing operating system that allows the user to arrange applications in the most useful configuration - which on a desktop with a mouse and keyboard, is the productive system IMHO.
