Also should add that I can now copy huge movie files 10+ times faster in Windows 8. And that's no exaggeration. There was always a bug in Windows 7 that made copying huge files to a USB or external drive just trickle along at rates of 5 to 20mb/s. I am now easily over 250mb/s. Movies copy across in no time at all.

Proof? Those are radically different claims than these benchmarks:

They didn't even register that large a difference between USB 2.0 and 3.0

I don't see a real difference, but it's very hardware specific I'm sure.

The main thing is the interface and features of file transferring is greatly improved in windows 8.

I'll agree with that.

I just replaced a clean install of Windows 7 with a clean install of Windows 8 on an older Intel G45 mobo with an Intel Core Duo E7500 CPU, 8 gb ram, and a 120 gb ssd. Besides having to manually adjust for overscan because the Intel Driver software wouldn't install and a minor remote control glitch, it certainly seems to be running quicker. This computer started rather quickly to begin with, but it just feels a bit quicker now. I know "feels" and "seems" are quite subjective, but I didn't do actual timings on anything.
