And everyone remembered how that worked out with RROD. It needed a separate power brick and still overheated.

The way these devices are built have to be designed several months/year in advance. To suddenly do "oh double the RAM" would mean all of that physical stuff they've made now is junk putting the division in the red without selling a single thing.
If there is a problem, it would be some of the "low quality posts" that are made by posters with less than 25 posts. To "correct" this would require a lot more moderation which I'm not sure they or anyone else is willing to support.
Hey now, Finder having tabs is a pretty big feature IMHO and something that is in other environments that should have been added ages ago. :)
As for the Metro Start screen, I really favor the "original" Ubuntu/Unity "graphical shell". You hit the Windows/meta key and type in what you are looking for like "voip" and get everything that has to do with VOIP which is handy when you aren't sure what VOIP stuff is installed on the workstation. You could even activate it without further interaction: If you somehow can't find a "logout button" you could use that shell to logout. Mac OSX has a similar feature too but I don't find it as flexible. The key thing those two have over Metro Start is that it is only activated when you want it instead of defaulting and IMHO it doesn't work correctly where you still can't find things.
In the end, I could make Win8 work for PC games since in many uses cases it is running a limited number of apps but why would I want too?
Everyone should realize there is an actually a problem if you have to go to Google to discover where features are. For instance: Something I really like about Mac OS X is that they have way more hot keys for functions than Windows so having Windows 8 with many more hot keys is great idea. The issue is they never really bothered user what they are. I thought Linux systems were supposed to be poorly documented by Windows 8 takes that crown now. Not only are things never really exposed to the user there is no rhyme or reason to many of them along with the dualistic let alone schizophrenic nature features and work flows where all too often there are *two* ways to access what should be the same thing that don't behave the same way.
I like how a senior engineer put it: Windows 8 is like going to a house and finding the plumbing is messed up. Sometimes the hot water faucet is on the left and sometimes it is on the right. Sometimes you twist the faucet counterclockwise to turn it on and sometimes you twist it clockwise. In a strict sense it isn't broken or missing anything nor is it impossible to figure out but it is stupid making people guess what should be excising something simple.
