You've Had Your Win 8 Say

A month or two back I asked you, the loyal Redmond Report readers, what you wanted to see from Windows 8. You gave me an earful -- well, it was more of a screenful.

The main wish is for it to be reliable. Oh, and being secure is another great idea. This means truly isolating apps from core OS components -- at least that's one reader's idea. Some want a hot new UI while others don't want to relearn what they already know.

The idea I agree with the most is to slim down the OS -- something the tablet version might bring about.

What have I missed? Your thoughts welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
