So, with a release date for Windows 7 SP1 in sight, I decided that it’s time to bring our Windows 8 Wishlist Project to the next level. Microsoft promised that they will listen to customer feedback in their all-new Windows.next! If you have a great idea for a new feature, suggest it (see poll in sidebar). We’ll be sending the final list to Microsoft for consideration.
I compiled a list of some features that you would like to see in Windows 8 based on our current wishlist (click here to read them all) :
- Plug & Play Cloud Computing
- Theme Editor
- Improved Network Sharing
- Simplified Rights Management
- Built-in Password Manager
- File Converter (for all formats)
- Password-protection for files & folders
- Hardware Diagnostic Tool
- Stackable Taskbar Icons
- Shortcut Manager
- Windows Dialog Customizer
- Personal e-Mail Client
I did not add all features, because some of them are too complex to describe them with a few words, so please don’t be angry if your wish did not make it on our list.
There are many features that could be useful, especially when I think about the future. Cloud computing will become the new standard. 3D will play a more important role than ever and Solid State Disks will make everything a lot faster. So, when everything is connected, faster and in 3D, what could be a useful feature that Windows 8 should include?
This is your poll, so it’s your turn! This is your chance to help make Windows 8 (or as Microsoft currently refers to it “Windows.next”) better.
Where can I vote for new features?
You will find the poll in our sidebar on the right!
