Windows Despite the fact that Windows is the world's most-used desktop operating system, it lacks certain features and gimmicks that other operating systems do have (no, really?). PCWorld made a list of 18 features Windows should have, but in fact doesn't. While some are spot on, others are a bit of a stretch.

1)On Linux with KDE and Compiz, I have *both* Expose-like features and the taskbar. They are both useful, especially if you have N different windows of the same application opened and you can't easily spot them from the taskbar.

2)The MS virtual desktop powertoy is next to unusable (at least, it was on XP). It allowed only 4 desktops (I am accustomed to at least 8!!) and it worked really bad.

7)I like 'em instead. If you don't want them, just don't use that. Having more features is never bad if those don't go into your way.
