No real update on changes since end of December. How about an official response to the issues raised, or are we just hoping all the problems (and compliants) go away?

Please turn it back
The new layout looks very white and dated
This is not modern or fresh
The text and pictures are very large, even on 1080p screens. The site does seem designed for tablets rather than anything else.
Please bring back the old layout
Erm, dont think this is the consumer preview. Its just an updated build of the tech preview, with some very broken features (start menu).
Great idea, but on Windows 8 its part of the system (and part of the browser in Chrome)
My only way to avoid this tech currently is to use Firefox and not install the plugin
I dont miss Flash, and noticed increasing numbers of sites (using videos etc) that work fine without it
The new BBC News site also does if you fudge your user agent
1TB is pretty small fry these days, wouldn't even store my data at home, rather than a customers site. Its basically a way to get people interested to upsell the full product - although the HP VSA is a cool thing.
Did you get the memo?
Vista is in extended support, which means (basically) only critical security updates, rather than general improvements/enhancements. So if your still running Vista (all 3 of you) then no updates for you!
Re: A shining example of how Microsoft got it wrong
"There is no easy way to add on the GUI afterwards if need be. If, you opt for the safety of the GUI to start with you have the Modern UI ... on a server!"
Very easy in fact if you bother to read the documentation
Install-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra, Server-Gui-Shell –Restart
Just as easily removed as well. Only caveat is you might need the Windows installation files, if you installed core from the go as it saved disk space by not caching them on the system drive.
Does that no mean the plastic for the printer is going to cost upwards of £100 for a gram?
x66 was CISC last time I checked!
Nice looking UI but very poor on using the available screen space, lots of blank space and very little information shown. Worse than the new Sky HD UI which doesn't allow the planner to show more information when the mini-tv is turned off.
Will it blend?
That video should be banned, definitly cruel and sadistic punishment
Another coroporate not upgraded from IE6 then
Of that old screensaver that did that, would simulate a BSOD and reboot of the PC, lots of fun that one!
