Windows "The new changes include several new lock-screen images, the Windows Store tile is now green, and the small magnifying glass in the bottom right corner when you scroll has changed to a simple square. While nothing major, they are representative of the across-the-board tweaks we expect to see when the Release Preview hits the digital shelves in June." So, nothing to address the core issues with Windows 8's mouse/keyboard-hostile environment. Sad.

Unfortunately, desktop mode doesn't actually address all the issues of Windows 8 when used with mouse+keyboard, especially when using multiple displays. Besides, why go for Windows 8 in the first place if you're going to use desktop mode on it anyways? That completely defeats the whole purpose of upgrading.

Well, I have ONE answer.

The Windows 8 task manager is awesome.

That's all I can think of ;)

Problems with multiple displays is going to be a real dealbreaker for me. Working on multiple displays is cardinal to my workflow and will wreak havoc on my productivity if it is complicated.
So i hope the Desktop mode do not deviate to far for win 7
