I personally don't use Zune, Facebook, twitter etc - so this doesn't really constitute as an improvement for me.

I'd be happy to trade all that for 1920x1200 NATIVE resolution...

Unfortunately that was several updates ago, so I'm not holding my breath. I don't think it's a priority for them.

I do miss the games console just being 'a games console' aspect.

Pfft I'm waiting for Microsoft to make a console that allows you do dual-boot Windows.

I didn't understand that to well. In my opinion the main benefit of using a console over a PC is not having to worry over system specifications.

With a computer that is not the case.

I was just making a joke...

You are right about the console part...the only thing my gaming buddies have against consoles is lack of mouse/keyboard support (PS3 excluded), lack of user-made content (some games only, mods, maps, etc...) and the fact that a PC game running at max settings normally looks better than its Console counterpart

Even the half a**ed ports look far better than their console counterparts.

I've always switched back and forth between the two platforms and both have definite advantages/disadvantages.
