Finally ditched Gmail for good today, so I am all-in on W8. Phone & tablet are like a well-oiled machine - I feel like I've been waiting forever for this level of smoothness with the perfect UI to match. And Windows 8 is superb, I really don't get the criticisms. Granted, it's a bit awkward to switch back to the desktop, but this is v1.0. Once the big devs get on board, we'll finally be rid of the desktop for good. I long for the metro version of the Adobe Creative Suite. I never wade into Apple VS PC debates, but if Apple had released this OS, people would be climbing over themselves to put it on their Macs. The world hates/distrusts MS, pure and simple -- and the hatred isn't unfounded, I was there once. People can't believe my Lumia runs a MS OS. MS's worst enemy is their years of phoning it in and cashing huge checks. Point blank, their marketing department is incapable of speaking to the masses. I hope they figure out how to market all of this goodness, because I'd hate to see it go the way of the Betamax one day.
Anyway -- here is my Skydrive question: When I'm in the metro version, how can I share a file? When I select a folder or document I get many options -- not one of them to share it with another user. The only sharing option I have is from the charms menu - but that's to send an email. I am looking for the same functionality I get from the web app: select file or folder with an option to share. What am I missing here? This seems like it would be a no-brainer.
