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.

Personnaly, I see nothing in Windows 8 that could motivate me enough to upgrade from... XP.


Plenty of folks said the same thing wrt upgrading from Win2000 to XP.

Well, ten years later, after putting my hand on a computer running Win2K, I still couldn't figure out why Microsoft would go Fisher Price on their user interface and double the hardware requirements with XP...

Me->XP or 98->XP, now, I can see how that was an upgrade.

With 2k->XP, MS was probably mostly just more honest in citing hw requirements necessary for pleasant experience.

And then, later service packs added to it (with the focus on safety probably taking its toll in resources; while 2k comes from blissful, more innocent times).

BTW "Fisher Price" - yeah, I always turned it off, but people got used to it ...and notice how some are now describing Win8 like that (while probably feeling nostalgic about XP)
