Whilst I love meta, clicking an article that is reporting another article for me to click on to get the information I want is not something I will ever do.

Maybe Microsoft should have a Volleyball of Death cursor instead.

Ribbon Menu looks unbelievably dumb, ugly and bulky.

They need to start just shipping Windows with programs that we want and are useful. Its kinda stupid that Picasa has more features, and quite frankly is better looking, and launches faster and runs better than Windows Photo Viewer.

I was going to bring up Windows Media Player needs to run more codecs, than I remembered Quicktime is a the worst program ever. Ever. I think the best feature for Windows 8 is making sure Quicktime isn't allowed to open anything, but .movs.

Cloud integration and ribbon interface makes a lot of sense for tablets. Desktops...not so much but it could work.

VIRUS FROM PRON, U SICK FREAK!!!

IT WASNT MENT TO BE OVERCLOCKED <b>THAT</b> MUCH!!
If the computer knew that much about the crash it probably would do that.

What I'd like is a simple reset button in the BSOD, so I don't have to restart the whole computer.

I guess they're just trying to make it a more seamless transition between Windows Phone 7, Windows for tablets, and Windows for desktops. Not really sure as to the integration of Xbox live, though.
