    Default What do you want to see in Windows 8?

    With the new Operating System on the horizon I thought I would put my idea in a pot then let others contribute to it.

    You can bring old tech from previous Windows versions as well as some new Ideas.

    The first thing I would have. (I rate this high in importance in safety)



    An interactive filtering mode for Windows Firewall.

    This option would give you the user an option to allow or not allow traffic in or out of your computer.

    Well, I'd like to see some sort of a restore Windows to defaults sort-of-a setting.

    Incidentally, I hope you have voted here : Which features would you like to see in Windows 8? A Cross Blog Poll | The Windows Club

    Tech blogger and programmer Raphael Rivera has opened a public poll on his website asking what features you want to see in Microsoft’s next operating system, Windows 8, due in 2012. The poll is extremely comprehensive and includes all types of features that users have been clamouring for. These include support for different form factors and third-party match management. As Raphael says, “Worst case, Microsoft simply ignores the whole thing.” but this is no reason not to step forward and make you views known. Why not have a go with the poll and we’ll see what new features in Windows 8 the public really want.

    As we talked on the other forum, here I wanted to share as well:

    I had discussion with a friend about msftkitchen.com article: Windows 8 Plans Leaked and here is his quote about it:

    Regarding your link, I have some concerns with what the author says (well, what the slides say).
    • Facial recognition is DANGEROUS. Think about it : Anyone with your photo will be able to log in into your account. Or, if the software checks for movement, anyone with a video depicting you. Now that’s security.
    • Cloud integration seems both useless and dangerous regarding privacy to me. I fear this tendency of reverting to supercomputers and dumb terminals, after all, it’s to avoid this that PCs were developed. People never learn, it seems. I prefer to keep my data on an offline machine.
    • The startup time isn’t that big of an issue for me, as numerous people said on KL boards among others before, you typically start the PC once a day only, what’s important is application performance.

    Moreover, many points seem like Micorsoft want to copy Apple by trying to appeal to the mainstream audience, risking to lose the “specialists” (gamers, technicians, developers…) that really don’t need an Apple-like experience.

    The one that takes the cake is the restart feature. Why implement this instead of fixing the situation causing poor performance ? Strange thing, and made me laugh. It’s akin to putting a sign “please take the stairs” when the elevator is broken in a building, and waiting until you buy a new elevator, instead of calling the repairman. I understand it will cost less in terms of development, but it’s not very smart if you ask me.


    What do you think of it, yourself ?

    Another commenter in the first link above, posted:

    Yeah, I don't like some of the things I'm seeing here. While faster boot time and other improvents are good, I don't want things like Windows Cloud. I want to build my own machines instead of bying some toys like the "Windows 7 Prototype Machine" shown there. I don't like it when Windows does too many things automatically which I could do myself.

    Also I wish Microsoft to by Ccleaner, and rename it to Windows Cleaner, so we can have it in Windows 8 by default~!
