What is the best improvement in Windows 8 over Windows 7?

Even though Windows 8 has been released long enough for a significant update already, I still have Windows 7 at both my home and office. Hey, I may be behind the times, but at least I’m not still using Windows XP. What is the single biggest improvement in Windows 8 to someone migrating from Windows 7?

I would say Push Button Reset. Sooner or later, most machines are going to have a problem, and when they do what do you do? With Windows 8, when you feel like your PC is starting to slow down or act erratic, you can use the Refresh Your PC function to basically do a clean re-install while retaining your personal settings, data and Metro style apps. In addition, it does this very quickly. If you go get a cup of coffee and have a short discussion about the latest Walking Dead episode with someone, it will be done when you get back to your desk. You will still have to reinstall desktop based applications like Office, though. And it is simple....sure beats hauling out a Windows set-up DVD. You can also do a reinstall to as-shipped condition using Reset Your PC.
