Got 8.1 hoping the fan on my Vaio would return to normal (Win 7) noise level. Not so. Also, all videos I had organized in the Video folder were relocated and very difficult to find the 8.0 way. Worse yet, PRIVATE videos are now mixed in with offerings from web that are not free. I told my daughter it's Microsoft fault.

But don't windows 8.2 have to go through beta testing first?   I'd say more likely in October 2014 that 8.2 will be released?

Upgrade Explorer.exe

I am happy with Windows 8.0 and Start8, behave like Windows 7 except better.
What I would really like to see with Windows 8.2 is an update to explorer.exe so that it will finally have full support for file paths longer than 255 characters in length. This is a very annoying limitation that occurs frequently in deeply nested folders on my computer. I have to use Totalcommander to do the operation I ought to do with Explorer. NTFS itself has support for file paths longer than 10,000 characters I believe.
Also, start using "MiB" and "GiB' instead of "MB" and "GB" where applicable. When you are stating a capacity in the base 2 system, use "MiB" or "GiB" and when stating a capacity in the base 10 system, use "MB" or "GB" please! It confuses a lot of users into thinking that their hard drive isn't as big as it should be.

Also make the task manager more code efficient, take longer to load than the Windows 7 task manager.

Don't build up our hopes only to break them,the best thing windows could do with 8 is to bring out an update that installs 7,and call it whatever they want

Unfortunately for Microsoft, you are one of the many who feel this way...
