    So, what are the first apps you installed on your new Surface 2?

    Facebook
    Twitter
    Netflix
    Metrotube/Hyper (Youtube)
    Halo Spartan Ops
    Angry Birds
    Kindle
    mobile.HD (for my media)

    That will do me for now, the rest I can do flawlessly in the browser. Would be nice to have Chrome on the platform at some point, you know, when Google stop being arses about it. I wish there was a Crunchyroll app too.

    I think that Netflix was probably the first one I downloaded. Just had to see the new screen in action. Wordament, Kindle, Box, All Recipes were pretty early on as well.

    I haven't tried, but I would think that youtube would work fine in the browser if you wanted to use it, but maybe I'll install MetroTube and compare.

    Is there no official LinkedIn app? Again, I am sure this works quite well in the browser. I'll have to check that out.

    So far, I am happy with Internet Explore, but why is there no home button on the metro app, but there is on the desktop version of it. Maybe I am one of the last home button users out there.

    Hyper gave me a blue screen of death on my first day of owning it and an annoying continuous buzzing sound until it 'recovered'. Sticking with IE11 shortcut for now.

    Actually, it installed all of the Metro apps that I have installed on my desktop. Then, I installed Remote Desktop. More to come.

    Twitter was first. Then eBay and then TSN for hockey news.
