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 wonder what Windows 8.1 Pro is like

I tried to download and install the Pro 8.1 preview for x86, and it failed (well, some things about Windows never change...). I've certainly been disappointed with Windows 8 Pro. Lags (on an i5 dual core), the abrupt and initially unexpected changes between Metro and classic desktop, no "recents" button nor any default way to kill a process that I can see other than putting a task manager tile on the desktop - even my Android devices do this tablet thing better. If 8.1 doesn't improve this situation, I'm going back to 7.
