Windows I have a Surface RT tablet. I bought it because I'm a Windows Phone user, and despite its major flaws, I still hate WP much less than I hate its competitors. As such, it made sense to me that I would like the Surface RT as well - I mean, my favourite UI on a tablet? Count me in! It should come as no surprise by now that Windows RT was a major disappointment, so now that the Windows 8.1 preview is here, did Microsoft address any of the major problems?

Metro Apps Suck

I am an occasional Windows 8 user, with most of my time spent in the "old-style" desktop mode. Every time I try to use a Metro app, I'm newly shocked at how shoddy the whole experience is. Skype, for example, isn't even usable. And when I try to do something simple like open an image it konks me over the head with this fullscreen monstrosity of a UX. Ugh!
