Re: I'm sure someone will like all of this...
once again, its all about gaming and tablets - nothing at all about productivity. Notice there was mention of how important security is, but nothing actually definite. No announcements on UAC improvements, nothing about registry replacements/modifications, nothing about hardening to prevent viruses, nothing about Group Policy, nothing about improvements to imaging. Not even about being able to save apps to something other than the C: drive (a massive pain for people with small SSD's) no mention of improving full-screen apps ability to access networked drives, etc.
Cortana and Spartan are great examples. The percentage of desktops with a microphone is pretty low, so what is front and center of the new desktop OS? microphone-required help system. I had great hopes for Spartan but instead of a rock-solid browser that can't be hacked, it is all about cross-platform reading-modes and tablet-style drawing pictures on top of a web-page....sigh
To be fair, those types of things do not sell to anyone but IT departments, still it is frustrating to see a focus solely on the casual consumer and sexy but useless features like the ability to move a live app from the desktop to a tablet in midstream taking front and center.
