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?

What do you think 3D graphics are? An illusion. Have you done any graphics programming? Thjs is fucking ridiculous. The perspective transforms in Metro are definitely 3D transformations.

Furthermore, they've removed airspace issues between pure DX surfaces and UI surfaces to let them naturally interop (using DirectComposition which takes bitmaps from various APIs). So in other words you're talking nonsense.
