This is still a Preview version of Windows 8.1, so I'd cut them a little slack there.
I've been programming Windows since 2.x and when I was in a position at Lotus to actually get their attention in Win 3.x and ME and 95 still couldn't get them to address portability/installation issues wiping data. I think I've cut them more than enough slack as apparently Windows has been in "preview" mode for about 30 years and some of the issues we complained about since the beginning still exist.
DISCLOSURE: I was always a big Windows supporter/developer and some of my work still exists in some things you use today. I've dug through and debugged it's core back in the day to figure out how to do things Office did that other stuff couldn't and how to fix things they wouldn't. Been there. Done that. Done with that.
