For example, I plug in a USB drive when on the Metro interface. I tap on the notification and immediately get bumped back onto the desktop. When that happens, you're almost forced to convert the XPS 12 to notebook form since dragging files is a hopeless experience with MS's touch interface.

Want to close programs and avoid that massive memory footprint? You'll have to start Task Manager EVERY TIME.

How about compatibility? Because of MS's idiotic approvals process for Flash content in the Modern Mode, many sites' content flat out won't work until you default back to Desktop mode.

There are so many things wrong with Windows 8 I don't even know where to basically ruined the entire experience Dell's XPS 12 provided.
:S I think you just scared me off getting a Surface. Maybe the summer windows blue update will fix the software and there'll hopefully be some better Win8 hybrid options by then.
