Windows Desktop users deserve a significant rethink of the Windows 8 gaffes and omissions for the next version of Windows, writes InfoWorld's Woody Leonhard, offering 10 must-have features for Windows 9. From a "Get out of hell" modal dialog to prevent unwanted jumping to Metro, to a Control Panel that actually controls the kinds of things you would want a Control Panel to control, it's 'due time we diehards speak out.' What's your feedback for the Windows dev team as it puts together its Windows 9 (or "Windows Blue"?) specs.

Contextual Scrolling

Please give me contextual scrolling. It drives me crazy that I can't scroll with the mouse without first activating the window (and in some applications, a sub-window must be activated to scroll - this is stupid). Hovering the mouse should be enough.

Also I want virtual desktops or workspaces (out of the box - no third party) but this is less important.
