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.

I'm a developer and vertical space is very import.

My main screen is a ViewSonic VP2365WB in 1080x1920 mode. Any 80/20 split would need to be a top/bottom split or things would just look ugly and useless.

I also find this mode ideal for web browsing since I can see most of the page. It's also great for doing word processing work.

I've yet to see a review from someone running Metro on a widescreen monitor running in portrait mode.
