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.

Bloat for bloat sake

Can someone please explain to me why I would want an OS that requires 1 - 2 GB of RAM to operate effectively? Has everyone forgotten that it is just the OS, not the apps you are using to get your job done? Maybe MS should have a TRUE minimal install and then let you selct which services you want to load. Software assurance is one I could do without.

Actually running the Aero Glass desktop and running Office 2007's Word, Excel, and outlook all at the same time I am using less then 500mb of memory. I was really surprised.
