I think if Windows 7 is any indicator, then I have good hopes for Windows 8. But they should cut down on bloat, and make all elements of the OS more coherent. Other than that, bugs and stability concerns are #1.

better network and sharing central.

It just takes too many clicks to get to some places I could go with 2 in XP.

Also, a better UI. I'm sorry, MS, I like 7's Aero, but it still somehow lacks the charm of Apple's Aqua and even some themes for GNOME. It's just about icon design, stuff like that. But it's a minor desire of mine... Tab-based navigation for Windows Explorer would be welcome too.

Fully customizeable interface. Let the user have full control of the interface and allow them to customize their interface the way they want it.

What I don't want to see is the ribbon menu bening brought back from Office 2007 in Windows 8, when it was counter productive in Office 2007 for businesses and home users to use in the first place. What makes MS think it will work in Windows 8? People don't want a lot of clutter on their menu bar, they want simple and straight foward menus. If it didn't take in Office 2007 it's not going to take in Windows 8. Note to MS "if it works, don't fix it." Thought they would have learnt from Windows Vista on that.

Iron Sharpens Iron.

No games - optional Win Update download - easy for all who want.

Restore - NEVER - repeat NEVER works - ditch it. (Finally, I've turned it off.)

This bloody thing about PUBLIC and PRIVATE USERS is the only complete stuff up. It chucks the stuff in public or private. Sometimes you lose stuff copying. Doesn't everyone have their own PC by now.

Sleep, rest, play go dreamtime, whatever they're called are good but a little wobbly at times.

Image viewing is useless - ditch it - if you can't buy IRFANVIEW32 (and make it 64) or guy doesn't want to join MS -- then we'll just get it ourselves as we have done since WINDOWS95.

You know the Windows7 codecs - put them in the install - Windows7 plays BUGGAR ALL and Windows Media Player is a lot of unfathomal crap anyway. (One thing in Win7 that's not easy) Maybe just use Media Center if you don't stuff around and bugger that up.

You can keep Paint for kids finger painting if you like. But BUY Photoshop Elements and put that in. Or use some of your own stuff - sure that's been selling like hot cakes. (PhotoImpact USED to be good - someone bought it - stuffed it - and left it.)

Your inclusion of .pdf is good and the NOW XPS doc writer from Print menu not bad. Safe anyway as no outside links. (Unfortunately not working in new Firefox.) I'm trying out IE9 right now. Lot of crashes BUT recovery is TOP NOTCH. Well done. They're the crashes you have when you are not having crashes.

Want local mail client - with some fancy compose emails - use Mozzie Thunderbird. From Gmail account.

Want local movie editing.

You have .zip make it do .rar as well.

Copy DVD basic and not worth the effort. If you can't code something to the level of BurnAware Free. You have a lot of users ask "where is the toilets?" and all you have coded is an empty Coke bottle that you hand over and say "Here piss in this.."
NOT QUITE ENOUGH - you know. Almost there.

Would ReadyBoost be necessary on the new sata III SSD's?


Windows 7 is the best you have ever done. I don't know why it's the easiest to use.

Vista is more rock solid, but slower and harder to navigate. Win7 crashes more and not as robust but speedy.

I'll buy Windows 8 anyway, and look forward to testing the public betas. Lots of fun and I get to build a machine for it.

How about a mode for computer technicians and advanced users so you don't get stupid popups like "press the start button to get to your programs". There is nothing worse than working on a clients machine and have Windows spoon feed me it's info bubbles.

(referring to comment #8)
How about when you first install/use the computer or add a user, you choose:
Child (young)
Novice
Experienced
Advanced
Then you can have lots of help, occasional help when needed, or no help unless you ask for it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
