Windows And so the smartphonification of the general purpose computer continues. This time around, though, it might actually be for the better. Microsoft has detailed two new features in Windows 8: refreshing and resetting your computer. Reinstalls will be a thing of the past.

Slow down?

An OS shouldn't slow down, no matter how much "crap" is installed along side it.

The user model of Windows doesn't help with breaking things... it isn't as bad as it used to be thanks to UAC... but meh...

My linux install is filled to the brim with rubbish to the point where my main root partition is almost full, The install is from 2005 and it runs as fast as it did then...

Windows should be re-designed from the ground up, to sort out the user privileges and get rid of that mess called the registry... And design a better filesystem while your at it. - Then maybe, you won't need to reinstall because of it "slowing down"
