Windows Microsoft has cut PC-to-PC synchronization from Vista. Vista Beta 2, which is slated to go to as many as two million testers, does not include the P2P synchronization technology. Microsoft officials said they cut the feature due to quality concerns, but the functionality is still "something we plan to deliver to our customers in the future," according to a company spokeswoman.

What's left?

They've cut so much that, frankly, they would be better calling this XPv2. The only thing that is going to be left is eye candy - most real developers don't consider eye candy an "OS release."

Now I think you are overgeneralizing. At least from what I have read that there are a lot of under the hood changes. I think vista will really start making sense after a year when the R2 is supposed to be released and by that time I guess we will see Vista as a full fledged platform to do web based shopping etc etc as one of the touted features I guess. Time will tell. In the meanwhile, I am in no rush for an upgrade to Vista. XP does just fine for 99% of my needs as of right now. The only hard thing for me would be to watch the people who will upgrade to Vista playing DX 10 games....thats the only thing that makes me want to have Vista...nothing else.
