We’re kicking off a new weekly poll today, getting our readers opinion on a different topic each week. Hopefully this will give us all a chance to talk about a relevant issue, share our thoughts, and generally have a chat in the comments!

With Windows 8 slated for release later this year and a developer preview already available, I think a lot of us have played around with Redmond’s revolutionary new OS. Today, I’d like to know which aspect of it you’re looking forward to the most.

Personally, I almost chose Metro but as a Windows Phone user, it’s already old news to me. The feature on my list definitely has to be Windows To Go.

A bootable USB Flash drive with Windows 8 in it, including my programs, settings, and files? Yes, a thousand times yes!

Of course, I picked only the features that have high visibility so I’ve let you, the reader, enter your own little feature as well. Let us know – and do share your thoughts in the comments!

Winners Announced

Competition Made Possible by UPrinting

CES ended last week without any earth shattering announcements from major players, including Microsoft. While there was no word on the potential launch date for Windows 8 or a slew of mind blowing devices sporting Windows Phone 7, we did get some good news with the impending release of Kinect for Windows.

Even if you take CES out of the mix, this past week was eventful for Microsoft. A cool web version of Cut the Rope is now online, Nokia is secretly working on exclusive apps, a major protest from the workers at a Chinese factory and more. Read on for some of this week’s best Windows app news and updates.

The Windows ecosystem is a very happening place with so much going on every passing day. There might not be an army of blogs covering every move of Microsoft in breathtaking detail, unlike in the case of our fruity competitor. But, that’s why we are here at Windows.AppStorm, right? From the core operating system to gaming and apps, juicy nuggets of information constantly come up.

But most of them might not merit a full length coverage in the traditional AppStorm style. So, at the end of a week, a few times per month, we’ll bring you some of the best Windows app news and updates. App developers, this is a great time to familiarize yourselves with our contact form to submit your news or tips.

Read on after the break for some of this week’s best Windows web app news and updates.
