Windows Hate

I tried installing Windows 8 on my netbook last night. Everything went great: the install only took about fifteen minutes, and it came up with Wi-Fi support, the proper screen resolution, etc. Except, on my 1280×720 netbook, every single Metro app fails to launch, politely informing me that “The screen resolution is too low for this app to run.” Really, Microsoft? You’ll support 1024×768 as a minimum, but 1280×720 – 48 pixels shorter – is just right out? Instead, you’re endorsing the marketing-drone-constructed bastard that is 1366×768 as the lowest-supported widescreen resolution? Well, alright then.
