the right click context menus are completely absent. Usually after right click, you have to travel some ways on the monitor to make the selection
ClearType (and the new DirectWrite) is somewhat inconsistently applied across the entire OS, and even turning off the feature in control panel or tweaking the setting doesn't take effect properly.
Oh joy, so they are taking away features from previous windows? Yeah I'm going to LOVE having 100 items listed in my right click.
As for direct write, that's been the case in previous versions of windows. I had to turn that off in steam to get readable text. And while researching it I found out that the last couple versions of IE don't follow the system settings on that in vista or windows 7. Even if you disable it in both windows and IE, parts of IE still ignore that and keep using it.

Someone should kickstart a Linux gfx card obviously.
Yes, because $100 million is so doable for something like that.
