1. Half of the Metro apps don't work in Australia. The Xbox Live app and sample games are the main sticking points for me (and possibly a lot of gamers).
Are you serious? This is a preview, of course most of the 'apps' won't work.
2. I had to fiddle around to find out how to shut down Windows. What use is hiding away the shut down/restart features?
This is kind of fair enough. Although this isn't just a new computer OS, it's a big change (aesthetically)
3. No Start button on the desktop and no obvious way to enable it. This is going to be a real concern for many as having a Start button is what they're used to.
4. A personal gripe for me but I didn't like the boot logo. Fish blowing bubbles? Who thought that was a good idea?
5. The Metro interface itself is a really stupid thing to force down our throats. I have a Windows phone for that already and don't want it on my desktop PC.
Do you even understand what Windows 8 is trying to do?
