Windows I have a Surface RT tablet. I bought it because I'm a Windows Phone user, and despite its major flaws, I still hate WP much less than I hate its competitors. As such, it made sense to me that I would like the Surface RT as well - I mean, my favourite UI on a tablet? Count me in! It should come as no surprise by now that Windows RT was a major disappointment, so now that the Windows 8.1 preview is here, did Microsoft address any of the major problems?

This is an article about 8.1, have you used it?

I just installed 8.1 and the overall usability is a little better, but the Metro applications don't seem to be any better.

I see, the reason I'm asking is because the full screen complaint you have is no longer true in 8.1 .

You can test this out by opening a photo from within the Mail app. It will open a long side the current app at a default 50/50 split which can now be resized.
