Windows Microsoft has released the Windows 8.1 preview for download, but they region-locked it to 13 specific languages, and Dutch is not one of them. So, even though my Surface RT has been completely and utterly English from the day I bought it, I can't install Windows 8.1 and tell you something about it. Those of you who can download it, why don't you tell us what it's like - or you can head to The Verge who got early access. In case you couldn't tell, I'm a little annoyed that we're arbitrarily being left out once again.

It's a bullshit reason for any screen over 10". I don't want a screen full of search results to search through, I just want the relevant ones, presented in a space that's easy for my eyes to scan. Spreading them out all over didn't work for Gnome 3, and it's just as shit in Windows.


This is available in Windows 8.1 via the search charm. It functions as a flyout from the right side of the screen without transitioning to the start screen.
