Just listing down a few tidbits and minor changes I noticed while using Windows 8 ...

- When you set a solid color for wallpaper, the active window remains white and does not take the hue or color of the wallpaper.

- Display Delete confirmation box is disabled by default. You can of course re-enable it if you want to.

- Documents folder in Windows 8 are referred to as My Documents.

- Windows Explorer is referred to as File Explorer in Windows 8 in the Win-X menu.

- The WEI score in Windows 8 ranges from 1.0 to 9.9. In Windows 7 the range was between 1.0 to 7.9 , and in Windows Vista it was between 1.0 to 5.9.

If you come across any more such, please do share.
