Windows There is one thing that really pushes my buttons, one thing that is sure to send me off on a rant on life, the universe, and everything. I have a 21" widescreen 1680x1050 display - which might not be large to some of the real geeks in here, but to me, it's pretty huge. With so much screen real estate, why oh why do my friends all still insist on maximising every window they come across when they sit down behind my computer? This - and more - is the subject of the latest post on Microsoft's Engineering 7 weblog.

I love some of the anti-discoverable features in windows. Like shift-right click in a folder on vista enables the "open command prompt here" menu item. Very useful for a sizable percentage of the user base, but how the hell are you supposed to know its there?

What's a command prompt, and why would I want to open one?

not sure if you are being fasicious or not, but its a terminal emulator. In gnome its gnome-terminal, kde is konsole, windows its command.
