Windows So, I've been using the Windows 8 Release Preview since it came out, almost exclusively (except for work, since I'm obviously not going to rely on unfinished and untested software for that). I already knew I could get into Metro on my 11.6" ZenBook, but on my 24" desktop, things aren't looking as rosy. Here's an illustrated guide of the most pressing issues I run into, and five suggestions to address them. Instead of just complaining, let's get constructive.

Metro Is Not Multi-Tasking UI

Do any of the Metro apologists here even understand that Metro is not a multi-tasking interface? It does not even allow you to concurrently view and use even two applications no less the eleven I have currently running and visible that I need to get work done. Do any of the Metro apologists use the Windows OS for more than passive consumption and entertainment?

Is that a painful admission? It must to be here shilling for Microsoft as you are and not even have used the OS, but the pay is good isn't it?
