I may be the only Windows user out here that was unimpressed with Windows 7. Sure it was pretty, but so far I have found it slightly less stable than VISTA. Windows 7 turned my working printer/scanner into a stand alone scanner that refuses to print. Oh well, time to discuss the future.
Here is my Wish List for the next version of Windows.
- When I kill an application for hanging, don’t go searching for a solution. You’ve never found one. You never will. All you do is kill a minute of my life making me wait. And I am aware there is a 10 step instant kill method that geeks know about. Not interested. I want the ability to KILL INSTANTLY any application.
- A lean mean Windows Explorer. It has gotten way too bloated. This application should be rocking fast. It routinely hangs loading folders with lots of files.
- What happened with Adobe Flash? It used to work fine, but now it crashes frequently. The browser doesn’t matter. Flash became unstable once I went to Windows 7. If it is a Microsoft problem, fix it. If is an Adobe problem, deal with them directly on finding a solution.
- Unified volume control. I am so SICK of every web and desktop application having independent volume controls. Radio and TV don’t work that way. I want the operating system to calibrate the volumes for me and then I can adjust a single volume from my speakers.
If you have something you wish to add to the Windows 8 wish list, add it in the comments. I know at least one person inside Microsoft will be reading it.
