1) Maybe they'll be quaking, but unless MS makes them run x86 programs then there's not much reason to go Windows over say, iOS or Android, especially with the costs of iOS and Android being very low but Windows being >$100 at retail. (No, don't go on about student editions, OEMs don't buy those.)
2) And? They've changed the way it looks, that's it.
3) Mac has had that since ~2007, Linux since...I honestly can't remember. (Ubuntu since ~2005 specifically but I think it was around before then)
4) Another feature ripped off Linux, yawn, they better try and improve it at least.
5) Um, that doesn't sound like a tablet feature? Nor does it really sound like a feature anyone would use...In my experience these type of facial recognition and voice recognition things can be broken quite easily. (Eg. Kinect and dark skinned people.)
6) Another feature ripped off Linux, which has been able to do that since before Flash Drives were around via CDs?
7) Like I said when this was revealed, I doubt you can really do enough in explorer for ribbon to be useful, but nearly all the complainers won't care once they actually use it.
8) A new login screen?! WOW! That's going to make Apple need to replace its pants in fear!
9) How the hell is it hard to see which processes are using memory or CPU time up now? Go to processes and sort by whatever bar suits your need, the only real thing it needs IMO is for how much memory its writing/reading to/from a second to see if that's bottlenecking anything.
10) More useless cloud features, and with that above USB Flash Drive option I'd personally rather use that...
All in all, Windows 8 seems to be gearing up to match Linux in 2005 for feature to feature, the only stuff I'd find useful at all is Ribbon in Explorer (Put the most used stuff on the toolbar then hide the ribbon for heaps of space), the app store (Less viruses from people looking for an application but downloading one from something like www.free-download-paid-software.com
or something) and the USB drive thing.Edited by Brutuz - 4/30/11 at 8:33pm
