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.

Re-Install a Linux operating system?! Well I suppose that depends on what you mean. Like going from LMint11 to 12? I run Arch and as a rolling release are you counting every time I update my kernel? Not everyone needs a version jump for new features.. Don't tell Microsoft this as that's their whole business model.

Yes I know things get messed up, however I haven't ran across a need to in 10 years , withstanding version upgrades. Well, I did have to deal with broken grub once, what a pita. I guess it also helps I run older systems mostly by the time I get them their stable.
