Windows 8 is actually fantastic, don't be afraid of change. The new instant search is the fastest I've ever used, and it can also index email and text in documents. It mirrors you music library and documents across your windows devices, and it has a spotify-like free music streaming service that integrates with your media library. There are improvements to startup speed, and memory management. There's a completely redesigned task manager and file transfer dialog, both are more efficient than the versions in windows 7. There's thousands of stability improvements in WIndows 8, and build in file support for everything under the sun, even .iso files (that now mount instantly with a double click)    
   
The new start interface is annoying at first, but it IS better, even on a desktop. Look at it this way: on the old version you had a small pop up window in the bottom left of the screen. You had to click and scroll through lists to get what you wanted. Now, you can arrange all your programs in a grid that makes sense, and instead of only having a few frequently used programs listed, you can have them all laid out and customized into groups that aren't constantly changing. The new metro apps are great for things like weather and email so when you click on them you get information instantly, you don't have to log in, enter a zip code, click to where you want to be on the website...If I want to order something from amazon, I go to start screen, start typing what I want to buy, then I click the amazon tile and it displays all the results in the amazon app. I click buy, I'm already logged in, and it automatically opens the mail app with my email confirmation. I'm done in like 2 minutes.

ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MI NDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
they can hear, and see what your visually thinking
this is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces, segregate from everybody else-only associate with Asians and don't associate with non Asians that much, are very untalkative, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read m inds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they don't like, find astonishing, or funny etc because those people might see that and really wonder what that was that just happened there and see the connection, and they might accidentally say something similar to what the person was just thinking and going to say. If they all associated with non Asians a lot more then there would be a lot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those people think things they don't like etc, so they segregate and only associate with Asians so there won't be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place.

Try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something absolutely wild as you possibly can when you are around Asians, and try looking for Asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!!!!

All my wow right now... This post is just pathetic.
What about Windows' other new features? This is just like saying apple is doing it all over again.
Many would argue its not, but i don't care if it is or isn't. Windows phone was a success, what doom did it meet? Microsoft drowning in money could be doom i guess.
At least Windows adds "big" new features instead of "Oh, it runs faster now." Well, no **** Sherlock, its your new ******* product.
