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.

What I mean is, I could respond. Of course youd brush it aside and repeat yourself. Mention how Metro cripples you, slows you down, and hurts your first born. How Desktop mode isn't adequate and how this will end up like Vista.

You'll rant about how Microsoft doesn't listen to feed back, how Metro is a toy OS and how developers will flock from it. You'll point out that you need multiple windows and conclude that Windows 8 is what will drive Microsoft into obsolesence.

Then I'll disagree and you'll just restate your original points, this time with more fluff I don't care about, because you can't seem to comprehend that your use case is not the use case the OS designed around.

Basically, im saving myself time. Not because I have no response, but because it won't make a difference.

What an epic load of shit; three paragraphs to say absolutely nothing but you're petty, lack moral courage, are too lazy, and aren't capable of handling factual objections. Microsoft should find you a new venue...

You did respond, it's your response that I'm responding to now. Unfortunately you chose to respond with evasive blather rather than actually contributing to any real discussion of Metro's design.

Basically, im saving myself time. Not because I have no response, but because it won't make a difference.


If you were so interested in saving yourself time then you wouldn't be reading this. If you could make a compelling case for Metro then I'm sure you'd have done so.

You're fooling nobody.
