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?

I'm curious, what do you consider a "restriction free" OS?

If you're going to name some linux/*bsd don't bother - if I can't run the software I want on them they are "restricting" me too.

To be fair to the commenter above: What software do YOU run that is unrunnable and "no go" in GNU/Linux either through equivalents, virtualization, emulation or translation like wine?

Also have you tried any of those sollutions recently and have you been unsuccessful or are you just trolling?

Not trolling, I just play a lot of PC games. I'm aware about wine/crossover but these are not a solution for most modern titles.

For everything else I do, linux works mostly fine.
