    Your general opinions on Windows 8.1 Preview Release

    It seems that search (win+q) is horribly broken. It's slow, and finds less than win7 search. I like the other changes, but I abuse search too much for this to work for me. I'd also rather be able to hide the start button.

    Theoretical uses for Windows 8/RT?

    The only theoretical use for RT: Using Word/excel/powerpoint. Past that, Windows RT is practically worthless. You can do that other stuff on Windows 8, but then again, you could also do it on 7.

    'Real Work'

    Real work means the creation of high complexity content that does not already exist. Since Windows RT has most of MS office (excel, word, powerpoint), it CAN be used of real work, if that real work is done in office.

    16GB of ram is for stuff like photoshop and matlab. Consumer graphics cards are for games. Workstation graphics cards are for cad/compute/photoshop/whatever. Aero for windows 7 will run on any new not very nice laptop now, with almost no memory or graphical overhead. Totally miss the eye candy though.
