The "brains" of microsoft do so often fail. Maybe it has grown so large, that the left hand has become separated from the right hand.
The most boastful feature, and possibly the only one of consequence, when you consider the forum feedback so far, was the Metro interface. Forgive me , Microsoft, but if I had been in charge of development, this would have been my priority, before launching it on the public, for reaction. Most other parts of the OS are good enough, and not so different from Windows 7, in the final analysis. But the Metro should have been, at this stage, totally customisable and, at this stage, with a quick switch alternative desktop/start menu. I am certain that, had that been done, members of forums worldwide, would be falling over their posts with joy.
