OSNews, Generic OSes It's time for another "OSNews asks" item. This time, I want to focus on something that I've been wanting to talk about with you all before, but never found the time for. The question is simple: which feature(s) from other operating systems would you like to see in your own main operating system?

I am running Windows 7. I would like:
1. A more developer friendly command prompt. (Think bash).
2. ssh built in the OS.
3. tabbed command prompt windows (Come on MS!)
4. a smarter filesystem like Linux does that does not require much defragging.
5. And for crying out loud a decent implementation of virtual desktops would be great too.

Thats about it that I can think of this early in the morning...

PS: Before people ask why I just dont use Linux I will just say that I play a lot of games and I dont care for dual booting and I dont care for the user interface of kde or gnome. I much like Windows 7's UI.

As a developer, I hate base syntax (case-esac... really?), which is why I hate powershell. If you are a bash fan though, you will probably love it. Very bash-esque syntax, you can interact/pipe any .net object, and every microsoft product is required to provide interfaces to be scripted by it.
