The've made some under the hood improvements, faster booting, less resources used, better driver support for the latest hardware (as usual), better ways to restore a system that was infected with malware, etc. etc.

Propaganda and lies, all of it.

Well... I wasn't defending them, nor stating it as fact. Just going by some of the things I've read. Here is a brief article on all of the security enhancements: Protecting you from malware and here is a brief article about "System Refresh" Windows 8 with inbuilt computer repair

While there is no silver bullet to security, it is good to see them making it tougher for the hackers.

That said, I still won't get Windows 8, unless I can disable metro. I played with the developer preview, but haven't played with the customer preview. I did, however play with Windows Server 8... and they pretty much pulled the same shit with the start menu. It's not quite as bad as the consumer OS... but still aggravating.
