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.

"Then maybe, you won't need to reinstall because of it "slowing down"


That's just bullshit. I have hundreds of applications and games installed and I am not getting any slowdown on my Windows installation. It was true back in XP, but it hasn't been true for Vista or 7.
"

That's just worse bullshit.. they havent replaced the registry yet, so nothing changed there.. Windows WILL kill itself slowly.. App developers may be a bit wiser in the registry universe, so the bad impact on performance is probably less than it used to be.. no credit to Microsoft i'd say ..

Yes, there have been changes. It is a lot faster and more optimized now compared to what it was on XP.

In my experience of upholding a domain of 600 machines all running Windows 7... Nah, don't agree, it may be good on a quad core with 8gb ram, but at the end of the day, it will still slow down and suffer from shitty problems that just shouldn't be there...

But... that's my opinion ;) - no need to be nasty at your first post ;)
