    Dieter, we know you are a mac user, but can you please stop calling the Win key the "command key"?

    Why didn't you put links to all of the apps that you mention?

    Surprised they didn't mention Quicklook, which is literally a windows version of the quick look function in OS X.
    It allows you to press space on any file to be able to see a preview of it. Really useful for quickly looking through photos and files in general. It functions exactly like the OS X version, but looks like a built in windows app.

    The quality of The Verge's videos have really increased over the past few months. Well done. I've been greatly enjoying them all.
    Also, I now have a couple apps I need to install.
    Can you guys have a place on your website where you or anyone at The Verge just slowly adds links to software they found that would be very helpful or convenient? This video is great, but I know there's more than 7 things that might be really helpful.

    Completely agree with Dieter at the end. Windows is super powerful operating system for those who don't want to limited by one company's vision.

    "I hope Microsoft won't lock us all in their services" doesn't another company doing the same thing? What's the problem here?

    So agree with Dieter that Mircosoft should stop pushing us to use their environment, they should instead just make Windows itself even more useful to use around with other environment.

    Why shouldn't Microsoft try to push you to their other services. That's not any different from what Apple or Google are doing on their Operating Systems as well :D
