    Metro Office being a no-show? And you call that a problem?
    Metro-ify everything before you try to make RT a success.

    As for that recovery partition, I agree. It shouldn't be there, since it is a tablet OS.
    It just sends off a weird message to me. If they wanted RT to be a success and were committed to it, then they should've Metro-styled everything to show how committed they were

    I agree 1020% percent, one of the biggest quirks was how many settings were still stuck on the desktop's Control Panel. It's not a very seamless experience to keep having to jump back and forth between legacy and modern, just to change some simple PC settings. And we /still/ don't have Metro Office? Ridiculous.

    Still, things are improving with Windows 8.1, and Metro Office is "coming." Of course, we can't keep use that excuse. The time to act is now, we can't gain market share on the "Always Coming" OS. I hope Nokia can help whip Microsoft into shape during the upcoming merger, they seem to be on top of things and respond quickly to changes in the market. After all, Nokia has many years experience in the mobile market, they know what they're doing. Meanwhile, Microsoft is a relatively new player, and while they're developing the right philosophy with the Metro interface, I feel they're letting legacy Windows stay too prevalent in their minds.
