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.

Nelson you continue to prattle like a technically illiterate paid PR Shill 'spokes hole' as if dislike of Metro was some universally irrational, religious experience, or Luddite perspective -- based on subjective personal preference like 'sacred cows' and 'tea'...

While that may be the case for some, there are many things Metro simply can not do as an OS interface/window manager that is a prerequisite for development, enterprise and production deployments of workstations and servers where real work must be performed. Simple established capabilities like being able to concurrently use more then one application without task switching so data may be monitored in real time in one application, and acted upon in another.

Your 'feelings' and 'beliefs' expounded on ad nauseam in countless zealous over-reaction across multiple threads has nothing to do with real form that follows function prerequisites for modern OS to even function in mission critical and production environments...

But then with your not having produced anything but market speak on Microsoft's behalf, I don't expect you understand...

If that's your idea of 'getting it' you're not just a technically illiterate spokes hole, you don't even 'get' how clueless you are...
