On the right pane you can see that you can now search for apps and files. But you can also search tweets of people you follow on Twitter, you can search music and videos on your computer, search the Windows 8 app store or simply use Bing to perform an internet search.

Of course, the search built into Windows 8 is a Metro app and supports touch-enabled devices. Searching files becomes a lot more fun in Windows 8 thanks to a fast and fluid UI that is very responsive and alive.

All of the apps are working nicely together making Windows 8 a really dynamic OS with all sorts of interaction between the programs. Doing simple tasks like sharing photos via mail from within the Windows 8 search app is as easy as 1,2,3. Nice!

Looking forward to trying this search myself!
