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.

Win8 was *their* idea

Remember the Win7 ads that ended with the phrase "windows 7 was my idea"? Well now it is their idea and we hate it ;)

eg. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLAO9YnlJSU

I wonder what their new marketing spin will be.

Thom. Don't have win8 on a PC at the moment but I think you can right click a "classic" app and "pin to start menu" which is all I see metro as, an app launcher.
