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.

"My point is, past is prologue. People are afraid of change, however trivial it might be.

True, but that reasoning also serves as excuse to dismiss complains about changes that are for the worse.

Agreed. Which is why I try to distinguish the people who legitimately have complaints and offer solutions (All of Thom's solutions in this editorial are sensible and his criticisms are fair), and those who just spout off things like "Metro can't multitask! Metro sucks! Microsoft is doomed."

I don't mind having a constructive discussion with someone, but when people respond in the latter fashion, it just makes me think back to the same naysayers from previous releases.
