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.

I'm quite computer fluent and UAC simply gets in the way


I often need to edit some system files


UAC is working as intended. Requiring user consent and privilege elevation is expected when you're trying to edit system files.

Normal users seldom have to do such things.

True. And atleast it isn't like in Linux where everything requires root's password.

Don't troll. Most user-oriented Linux distributions don't set things up that way and you know it. I don't like Linux either, but at least come up with valid criticisms and don't troll a thread that has nothing to do with it.

Which is why anyone who isn't a 'normal user' should be the ones who are inconvenienced and shit on for the sake of millions of dumbasses who keep breaking their machines ;) At work, I can't even right click on a file in a network drive anymore without being pestered about not accepting candy from strangers.
