Win an A.C.Ryan Playon!HD2 movie player: tell us what feature you want to see in Windows 8

Better graphics? Faster performance? Something else? Tell us how you think Microsoft could blow minds with Windows 8.

[Update: This competition has now ended. See who won here.]

Chances are, you've been using Windows for years. If you're one of these people, even an ex-Windows user who's switched to Mac, you've probably got some opinions about the world's most famous operating system. 

Now with a new video below showing our first official glimpse at Windows 8, we want to know how you think Microsoft could blow minds with the new OS.
This Windows 8 preview video shows that the new OS has big, blocky tiles that are easy to touch and swipe with your finger. While clueing us into the new look, the rest of the OS is still a mystery, apart from some key details (read more here).

 
  • An tablet OS to rival the iPad is one thing. But what about the desktop? Is there something it can do that would make millions of gamers happier? 
  • With Google boasting 8 second bootup times for its Chrome OS, maybe Microsoft could take a hammer and chisel to Windows too?
  • And stepping back even further: what about price? Apple's new Lion OS X update will cost a measly $31.99 when it arrives in July. Would Windows be better as a cheaper "feature pack", rather than the once every few years upgrade we've become accustomed to?
Let us know your thoughts, and you could win one of two prizes, supplied by the good people at A.C.Ryan. The main prize is an A.C.Ryan Playon!HD2, valued at $219, which lets you insert your own hard drive to store your video, and operates as a media NAS with Full HD Gigabit streaming, USB 3.0, and support for lots of codecs. 

The secondary prize is an A.C.Ryan Playon!HD mini2 valued at $169. Like its bigger cousin, the Playon!HD mini2 plays a variety of codecs, only this box operates as a 1080p media streamer.
