Can anyone tell me what Windows 8 will have that Windows 7 does not have, and will be useful to a non-techie like myself. Thank you very much. Murrar

Quite simply the early reports are that it will not be intuitive nor have a standard way of performing the usual desktop type tasks. Most early reports give it dismal ratings. One such example just came out today: Wolverton: Windows 8 a big misstep for Microsoft The online version doesn't show the graphic that Troy Wolverton graded it 4.0 out of 10.

Before I get beat to death by those who do like it and tell me it's BETA, and not even released yet! I'm completely aware it's beta. However beta also means that functionally this is the product you'll get in release form. So it wouldn't be radically altered. Thats the problem, tweaks won't fix the major flaws.
