one thing i forgot: the UAC how it is actually is bad. what protection does it give, by clicking only yes or no? i think no protection or not enough. i think it would be much better if it is like on unix system. there you have to enter your password. i think this makes more sense than UAC in this form in which it is actually.
so i don't know if my feedback to you helps or is good or bad. because is is extremly hard to contact ms for such feedback and in 99% the ways i don't get a response. so i hope the things i post will be noticed by ms.
sorry, but i can not post a comment on older blog posts. i get an error message, so i try it here. sorry!
no old crappy startmenu please. no one needs it, because we have it on the new metro screen. you have either to change details in the design and usability. windows should be more "one and one". for example: why are the system settings on 10000 hundred places in windows? why can i access them via 10000 ways??? they need one place and 1-2 ways to access them. i wish it was more the way like osx. there it is simple and intuitive.
another not very good hing is the char bar. i think the charm bar shoulf more work like the new notification center on osx yosemite. there i can pin widgets like weather and calculator (which is great!) and it would better if we can access the charm bar via a button or something, because the swipe with mouse on deskop sucks. a button near the clock in taskbar or something - come on and think about it. apple is stealing ideas from android (swift keyboard and other stuff) and from MS (onedrive). so why not taking good working things from them?
i also wish that the whole os would be more simple and minimal. why in explorer ribbons and so much stuff what the most user did not need. make it simpler and make the design nicer. here is an concept style which look great. in this way from design (clean, simple, no boders, icons..) i want windows.

another thing is, why has windows no native support for *.psd and *.raw files? i want this. and i want native support for playing video files with the most codecs and formats like xvid, h264, mp4, flv, etc.
and a big thing to design: make the whole system look same. actually i open task manager -> then ressource monitor and whats there? right old crappy looking design from xp time.
so please ms. i hope you read this and i hope you think about this (and other things) and i hope you will do good work then. please! :)
