Windows Paul Allen, one of Microsoft's co-founders who left the company long ago, has posted on his blog about his experiences with Windows 8. He (surprise) likes it, but he does note a number of shortcomings and oddities - all of which are spot-on. However, he fails to address the core issue with Windows 8: it's forcing users to drill a small hole in the wall with a belt sander.

Thom, Which settings are accessible only through the classic desktop, and which of those are users likely to need to access?

I ask only because I've been using almost exclusively the classic desktop since the developer preview came out, and anything I need to change I've avoided doing it via Metro.

Also, I think that my exclusive use of classic is why I like 8 so much, and why I installed the RTM as soon as I was able to get my hand on it. If you focus on classic, there really aren't any significant differences, but those things that are different are improvements worth having.

How about language settings?
