Default Windows 8 Keynote at Build. WOW!

Some of the fantastic elements out of the Win 8 Keynote for me:
  • Win8 is capable of cold boots in <10 seconds.
  • Has Virus, Malware and Rootkit Boot level protection.
  • Built in FULL expanded Windows Defender with Antivirus, Anti-malware etc
  • Low memory footprint - less than Win7 on old hardware, scales to ARM, old Netbooks etc better than Win7!
  • Cool new Picture login - allowing combo's of swipes, touches etc on any picture.
  • New super low-power semi stand-by mode.
  • Re-improved Task Manager
  • Windows Assessment Console - Manage ALL your performance, benchmarks and PC maintenance.
  • Re-invention of Restore - Refresh and Reset (clean up but keep what you need - or return to out-of-box).
  • App Store - including old 32bit Apps (traditional).
  • SYNC Settings across multiple devices via the cloud (Windows Live).
  • Metro styling and evolution of UI into a re-imagined Desktop experience.
  • Touch elegance.
  • 1024 x 768 min resolution for METRO styling.
  • App Developer tools (new VS) allowing your code of choice for App creation, XAML, Silverlight, C#, CS, HTML etc...the choice is yours!
  • Develop for WP7 - Your skills are now 100% tranferrable - You ARE a Win8 Developer!
  • Windows 8 Developer Preview Builds available later today (2pm Aus) for D/L
