I have to say, one of the features I am most excited about is that Windows 8 respects the orientation metadata on Photos and Videos. Most of you that have mobile phone that capture video have experienced that frustration where the video is sideways on your PC. In the past you would need to tilt your head or your laptop to watch these. As you can see from the screen shot below from the Videos app on Windows 8, this is no longer necessary. The video below is a .MOV file taken with my wife's iPhone. This is also plumbed through to Windows Media Player and Windows Explorer.
