    Windows 8: In words of forums


    Looking throughout forums I've found one that got my attention:

    "If you want an OS that's faster than Windows 7, more secure than Windows 7, cleaner than Windows 7, better Desktop UI than Windows 7, better Windows 7 than Windows 7, that has storage spaces, support for Windows to Go, Smartglass, mounting ISO and VHD, better File Explorer, cleaner Task Manager, a whole new Start Screen that's amazing on any Screen size and a more Modern OS in general. Then yes get the Windows 8 RTM. If none of those appeal to you, then by all means stick to the next best OS - Windows 7."

    Windows 8 RTM (Retinas taking damage...)


    I want all those things, but I also want things like Aero Glass, Desktop gadgets, Media center, bootloader that doesn't suck, ability to add users from the desktop, ability to run without DWM, ability to easily disable UAC and still use the full OS, and unified File/APP/Setting search.

    P.S.
    Windows 7 already has easy native VHD mounting, jut many people don't know about it.
    W2G is only available for Enterprise, which normal people can't buy.
    What is "better Windows 7 than Windows 7" supposed to mean?

    Ah, but don't forget the potential for buyers remorse if you aren't the type that finds this new UI to be the most awesome thing ever designed. So many of those bullet points revolve around this concept that that it's (cleaner, slicker, better), but these are end user subjective.

    I think there are quite a number of us who might want some of those additional features of Windows 8, however we may be frustrated and unhappy with the changes in the UI. The question is whether we will opt for the additonal features, or settle for less frustration in our daily usage. Only time will tell.

    Just on a blog, but from my view, maybe the OS in general
