I've also read on many PC sites that just because Windows HAS a feature, that doesn't mean it works well. One in particular they were talking about a feature in upcoming Win8
that's like Time Machine on the Mac. The commentators last remark was, will it work as easily and seamlessly as Apple's given MS's history?!!
So some of their premier features can be clunky and crude.
I'm with ya MacB - I looked at Win8 features and many we've had for a couple of years... seems like MS is playing catch-up again! (or copy cat again- take your pick !)
