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?

Sounds like an abusive relationship:
Look, Windows lets me change background images and make tiles slightly smaller. I feel so empowered. Sure everything is buggy, slow, ugly and weird, but it's sooo innovative.

I'm hopeful that soon enough we'll have a boom of Linux tablets running Plasma Active, Unity, that Mozilla OS thing, Sailfish, and what ever Gnome has for tablets. Then there's a chance of running something usable and useful on a tablet.

Have you used plasma active?

Its an awesome interface, with a few bugs here and there that occasionally require me to reinstall it ( like the keyboard not working in specific aps after update), possibly due to using it on an Nexus 7.
