Windows 8.1: Six Things Microsoft Got Right and Others That Are Still Missing

Windows search is much improved, but still far from perfect
When I reviewed Windows 8 I criticized its broken down search, as it didn't make sense to separate documents from settings if search was meant to be used as a keyboard launcher. Windows 8.1 fixes this with universal search that works well most of the time, including some semantic search capabilities (queries don't need to be keyword-exact). However if you've used OS X, you'll note that Mac maintains its upper hand with more seamless and useful results. For example, OS X can remember your preference of a previous query and make that result more prominent in future searches with less keystrokes.
