What features would you like to see in Windows 8?

We still don't really know what to expect from Microsoft's next OS - an Intel executive made some predictions about Windows 8 this week, but Microsoft hit back by calling her comments "factually inaccurate and unfortunately misleading".

But if you could add whatever features you liked to Windows 8, what would you choose? Have your say in our latest poll - and if your favourite feature isn't listed, let us know in this thread.

I would vote for a reliable stable system, however all I get when I try to vote is:

"Site Error

It appears the site had some difficulty proccessing your request and has errored internally.

An email has automatically been sent to technical support."

I will make no comment about the reliability and stability of the PCA site!!

WinFS, sadly now many years overdue and was originally promised for Vista.

Well I am not wanting to be too ambitious for MS. Perhaps one or two very basic things like being able to save file names with : ? etc being allowed. I could never figure out why you have not been allowed to do this since the earlist days of MS. Perhaps there is a very good reason but I cannot think of it.

johndrew - should be ok now. We're having a bit of trouble with our snazzy new polls, which take a little while to sort themselves out after being updated.

Better driver support for legacy hardware eg scanners. It seems that too often people have to find work rounds.

It is quite a few years since Apple put Time Machine in OS X, I would like to see a similar back up available in all versions of W8
