- Faster, FASTER than Windows 8 (both desktop and Metro enviroments);

Is it really? Noticeably faster than Windows 8+updates?

Think this update will arrive as an update? Or will we have to reinstall Windows?

My guess: They'll offer an online update and a full OS ISO

well that's a given, as MS has always slipstreamed the service packs into the retail disks/ISOs as well

No doubt, at least in my machine (Acer W500). Everthing is smoother.

Just gave up on it because of the Store, that doesn't work (or works, but you need a MS ID).

People saying how bad the movies app is, it was blocked for a reason in this build what did you guys expect?


Same with the file app but doesn't stop people from already passing judgement...

Yeah guess we'll have to wait for BUILD 2013 to get the proper build and store access!

Not yet, I'm actually starting to think more and more that MS leaks these builds on their own and we mostly only see the 32bit version that's also the more VM friendly one for that reason. Just look at the history, Vista had lot's of leaks, then with Win7 MS put's a new boss in charge of windows and leaks start to go down to the point of Windows 8 not having any iirc. Now there's other people in charge and once again we get a leak after they pass M1 and have enough new stuff so people can talk about it.

As far as I can see, it's going down the same path as Windows 8... Nothing special.

Nothing special? This is setting the stage for the next 10 or so years for Windows. This is what Windows 8 should have been all along. To be dismissive of it before seeing the final product is not the way to go.

In terms of tablet devices, yes, it's significant. To desktop users, it's hardly worth upgrading from 7 at the moment. However, I see more and more people using devices like the Slate in the future. Correction: it's "special".
