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?

As its about "features", none of these are bugs:

Windows7
@ Windows XP's filetypes options; in Vista and 7 it's too crippled
@ Aero in WMP and Image Preview..
@ Faster shutdown. Mac can do it; why not windows?

MacOSX
@ Searching in read-only hard disks... I can't search in NTFS disks
@ Compressed-file viewing before extraction, as in BeOS
@ Individual item delete?

Linux; it's too hard to generalize..

Curious about that shutdown speed command. How long does it take for you to shut down? Mine takes 10-20 seconds I think. Mind I am running an RC version so this is no guarantee it will be so in the final RTM version of the OS.

I remember it being around ~20 secs for Windows7 RC for me, maybe 8 or 10 secs for Leopard...
