Which will hopefully be out by some time in Feb. 2012.

That's true for most users.
For some others the beta download should start quite soon. (CES) ;)

New for Windows 8, Reload a fresh copy of Windows 8 and keep your files and settings or,
Wipe out everything and just leave a fresh install of Windows 8 behind.

I wonder if the recover feature will be in the final version of windows..  I hope that they keep it as a feature in windows 8 in the final cause,  it would be very usefully.. Why can't microsoft ditch system restore  for that Recovery feature..
OS: Windows 10 64-bit

Because the System Restore function serves a different purpose. You certainly wouldn't want to have to wait for a recovery which takes some time to finish when a simple System Restore would do the job and takes considerably less time.

Thinking about it, can't you do close to the same thing now by doing a Windows repair from the Windows disc? (if you have one). I also would think that doing a reinstall like that in Win 8 would also require reapplying updates.  It would really be nice if that wasn't the case.
