I have been testing windows 8 for a couple of days of now. I have also tested Windows 7 Beta. Windows 8 might be the best of OS in terms of tablet computing because of its metro UI and applications. But it will add not much of interest to me as a pc user. I`ll describe the limitations in the OS and suggestions for it :-
.1) Indeed it is good and fast operating system, its metro interface is good but the person who has been using previous versions of windows will have some difficulties to get used to it as a pc user. My suggestion to Microsoft is that you should create a switch interface application which will enable users to use the OS according to their machine. For example if user is a pc user then he should get old interface of the windows(windows 7) having start menu, search , run command etc. But if the user is using tablet then he can use the current metro UI in OS and he can also change it to original windows interface with application. So with this application the user will be able to switch the interface when he wants.
.2)Windows 8 seems like to be weaker in terms of IDE drivers. One of the major problem that I have been facing on Windows 8 platform is that some of my IDE devices are not recognized by the Windows Operating System. My LG DVD Writer HL-DT-GSA-H42N. The device is detected by my pc but Windows is not recognizing the device. I didn't had the same problem in Windows 7. Many people who are using Windows Consumer Preview are facing this problem. I have the same problem with my Samsung drive. I have updated the firmware of both my devices but things doesn't go by my ways.
.3)There should be faster access to run command and command prompt as there was in earlier version of windows.
