    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center

    I researched windows 8 for two days prior to launch, downloaded and installed windows 8 pro from the Microsoft store as soon as it was available online. Within minutes of install I knew I would not be going back to windows 7 even though I was not familiar with things it just felt right. The malware I had been fighting for months that was undetectable to MSE, Windows Defender Offline, and Malwarebites was destroyed or disabled in the first hour of using windows 8. I still have a lot to learn about windows 8 but thus far it has been fast, stable, and secure. I like the new look and believe it is a keeper.

    It's not that difficult to learn it. That's highly exaggerated. But it's not easy nor does it feel intuitive. They have made things more difficult where it was not necessary and changed things that are not for the best. But it definitely could have been more user-friendly and have a better user-experience.

    The iPhone touch interface was the first of its kind when it came out, it was also not intuitive and very foreign to anything used before it.

How does Win8 handle WINSXS
My biggest complaint about Win7 is how the WINSXS folder is handled. Basically it simply gets bigger and bigger, and there is no way to reduce it's size. Is there any information about how Win8 handles this? Does it do any better? IS there a way to clean up WINSXS in Win8?
