The more I use Windows 8, the more I realize it was designed as a “search first” experience. That search experience as implemented in the Windows Developer Preview is incomplete, especially when it comes to working with files. The ability to see full previews is essential, for example, and missing here.
I expect this to be a popular Windows 8 configuration. The Windows desktop (with all your familiar programs) in a full pane, and a new Metro style app docked to the side.
You can also pin two Metro apps side by side. This configuration lets you keep an eye on stock prices while you keep your mind sharp playing Sudoku.
