Windows "All promised features were cut from Vista." This is a commonly heard complaint about Windows Vista on the internet. While there certainly is a lot to complain about when it comes to Windows Vista, the mythical 'cancelled features' certainly is not one of them. Let me explain why.

... listen to yourself: you're advocating a 50 billion dollar company that had 7 years to create a new version of its operating system and 4 years to deliver on the promises made at 2003 PDC, and in the end gave us the underwhelming pile of suckitude that is Vista.

Turn off (the totally unnecessary) Aero, and what you get is an extremely annoying redesign of Windows XP. Sure, there probably are improvements under the hood, but can I please have _all_ of my folders behave uniformly -- that is, display the contents in "Details" view, sorted according to the file type? Why does this OS always insist on controlling how I use my computer?
