I upgraded one of my desktops as a 'trial' of win8.
I've had some issues. eg, I cannot resize win8 mail columns -- annoying -- any idea how to do that?
And I keep getting stuck in metro apps without knowing how to close them. Sometimes the metro app gets squashed to the side of the screen and I get stuck in the interface. It is not intuitive using a mouse/keyboard.
I like win8 at the desktop level.But, the metro is too unintuitive for me.
Maybe I'm just getting too old :) I've heard some people rave about win8 but it doesn't really improve productivity over win7 (at least for me).
If you move the cursor to the top of the screen in a metro app a hand appears. Click and drag it to the bottom of the screen closes the app. Dragging it to the left or right pins them there so you can kind of multi task.
