    Windows 8: Microsoft's tablet-desktop still painful to swallow


    Review Microsoft's Windows 8 is now in the hands of developers and IT administrators subscribed to MSDN or TechNet. They are the first people other than close partners and fearless torrenters to try the final code.

    Anyone expecting major changes from June's Release Preview, or concessions for those missing the old Start menu, will be disappointed. That said, there are some changes to the operating system. These include the removal of Aero transparency from the Windows desktop, the addition of a brief tutorial, new desktop themes, and the availability of paid apps in the Windows Store.
