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.

The selective inclusion/exclusion of facts, recreation of history, and reporting opinion as fact is just the sort of FUD that piques people's ire and will hurt Microsoft more then help; I say: "Let them!"...

That there are articles like this one, even if it were a complete recitation of fact devoid of opinion (which is far from the case) is more telling about the sad state of Vista; an OS that had more design input from a committee of Attorneys then Software Engineers -- then the ridiculous markeing hype and fictional 'featurse and benefits'.

Anyone that thinks Microsoft is too lucrative and has achieved a hegemonistic monopoly that's too big to challenge or fail, regardless of what it does or creates need look no further then other large corporations from the Detroit car industry to Pan Am to see companies that 'had it all' and 'lost it all'...
