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.

OK, it's all and nice, but forcing users to have UAC enabled won't allow me to make any use of it, unfortunately.

(I'm quite computer fluent and UAC simply gets in the way - I often need to edit some system files [e.g. hosts], Notepad++ and NetBeans have issues with it, etc...)

don't blame UAC for your lack of knowledge:

"administrator prompt"
cd c:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
notepad hosts
save and exit.

I'm aware that I can still edit the file and so forth - but imagine situation where I already have opened N++ and simply want to edit yet another file and I have to jump through stupid and pointless hoops just to add one line... no, don't think so...
I DON'T NEED METRO APPS, I could use them if they weren't making me do unconvenient things for the rest of the day... <shrug shoulders>
