Windows 8 Not Quite Ready For Work Yet

A guest writer for TheRegister tried to use a Windows 8 laptop at work, with surprisingly mixed results. At this pretty late stage, I would have expected better. It seems to be that Metro Apps are the main stumbling block for now - specifically, the author noted that apparently you need to use them in conjunction with a Live! account, and joining the computer to the local domain seemed to break them. Huh?
