Windows Microsoft has released a video showing off some of the features coming to Windows 8.1. I must say, the new features all look like great additions (the new search looks awesome), but I'm much more interested in performance - the huge bottleneck for anything related to Metro. In addition, as part of the Windows 8.1 update, Windows RT users will get an ARM version of Outlook. Not that I care, but I'm sure some business users do.

If M$ didn't consider the ModernUI interface like a toy, things could have been great.
Imagine this interface as a real Tiling WM, no silly closed Windows Store only access, no restrictions (such as no JIT, really M$?).
It could have been a really good OS with a "new" way of thinking, the truth is... it's not and it'll never be.
