Windows "As we pass the one month anniversary of the general availability of Windows 8, we are pleased to announce that to-date Microsoft has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses. Tami Reller shared this news with industry and financial analysts, investors and media today at the Credit Suisse 2012 Annual Technology Conference. Windows 8 is outpacing Windows 7 in terms of upgrades." Not bad, but there are the usual asterisks, as Ars notes.

2. On your second point. One thing I don't like about unix style security is that it saves the system, but the users home directory can still be destroyed.

On a home system, what is stored in the /home or the equivalent IMO is more important than the system which can be just replaced.

That is what backup is for, at least now you don't need to rebuild the whole system and other home directories are still safe.
