Windows The Windows 8 release Preview has been released, so go out and get it, test it, and wax lyrically, or complain loudly. I'm installing it as we speak, so no word, thoughts, or impressions from me yet. Like it or hate it, at least have fun, folks.

You can use WinKey+Z to bring up the appbar too, if you find yourself in a situation where Right Click is ambiguous.

I'm not a fan of how app bars are summoned by Mouse+Kb either.

I did not know that. Cheers!

It reminds me a bit of gnome 3 in that you are reliant on the mouse and keyboard to have full control over the ui not just copy paste etc. MS could provide a mouse driven interface better than what they have, but it seems lacking.

I guess the touchpad once done properly (e.g with it's own little screen to be ostentatious, link a stylus to the touchpad to write on) will take over from the mouse as the mouse from the joystick :/

Here are a list of Windows 8 shortcuts. Once I get the hang of them, they made my Metro experience much more enjoyable, especially with regards to multitasking.
