Windows 8 (I didn't test, but I assume the above is correct): 6.2.x
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.2.9200] - so yeah, the kernel is a point upgrade.
Actually, not. The metro interface does allow dual windows.
Hrm, apart from "one App per monitor" and the snap-to-side thing, does Metro allow for windows
? I wasn't under the impression it does?
I have three monitors and found it almost impossible to use with a mouse because it was really hard to hit the corners of the centre monitor and 'Metro' stuck to one screen.
I personally don't use the charms bar or any of the hot-corner stuff when dealing with Win8, so that's not really a problem for me. But I'm not using any Metro apps.
Kinda like it so far on my work laptop - it's not a big enough thing that I'll reinstall my finely working Win7 workstation, but next time I do an OS reinstall there, it'll definitely be Win8 (unless the successor is out and turns out to be decent.)
