Related to this second point is information I’ve received that Microsoft has been furiously ripping out legacy code in Windows 8 that would have enabled third parties to bring back the Start button, Start Menu, and other software bits that could have made this new OS look and work like its predecessor. In fact, I’ve seen that several well-known UI hacks that worked fine with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview are no longer functional in the coming Release Preview.
Seems like the days when a few (idiotic) people from Microsoft are behind key-decision-making are sadly back. A move like this also is making me remember of the vista days, when end-users were the least worry Microsoft had, and bloatware features were embelmatic for their thinking.
We'll find out tommorow, from early-reviewers, as the rc will be live today.
