Over the time Windows 8 has generated a lot hype as more and more features were discovered making their way to the nextgen Windows. Of course, the major highlighted feature of the Windows 8 is the all new Metro UI that is well suited for the Tablets PCs. However, from the early previews it don’t seems a good match for the normal laptops or desktop PCs that come equipped with a pointing device (i.e. a mouse). Apart from that, performance in particular the boot up time has been significantly enhanced as compared to the Windows 7. Another feature recently touted by Microsoft that seems much more useful is the revamped Windows Explorer with a ribbon UI with the buttons for the most used operations accessible extremely quickly through the interface as well as shortcuts. There are countless other enhancements of course.
