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.

What is the difference if it's full screen or not, when you focus on a webpage? It's a "wasted" space either way (and actually, when the browser window width fits to such "narrow" content it might introduce unnecessary clutter outside of it - most of the time I prefer to have blank space there, instead of icons or another app that's in the background)

^that is what I wrote (now adding some slight emphasis here and there), and for a reason; don't answer to only part like that. Yes, I can have some icons or background apps there, too, at times.

Overall, there's nothing unusual about focusing on a "core" task at hand, letting the machine follow the rest most of the time - that is the whole idea behind computers: to act as a prosthesis of sorts for our minds, freeing them for something else (OTOH, not doing that might be conducive to falling into information overload)
