Windows Desktop users deserve a significant rethink of the Windows 8 gaffes and omissions for the next version of Windows, writes InfoWorld's Woody Leonhard, offering 10 must-have features for Windows 9. From a "Get out of hell" modal dialog to prevent unwanted jumping to Metro, to a Control Panel that actually controls the kinds of things you would want a Control Panel to control, it's 'due time we diehards speak out.' What's your feedback for the Windows dev team as it puts together its Windows 9 (or "Windows Blue"?) specs.

Wait, now the command line is a FEATURE?! After 12 years of hate and ridicule by the Microsoft faithful against us Linux users? Oh, the irony of it all... ;-)

A great feature too! Microsoft's actually done some good stuff with the cli in PowerShell. When working on Linux systems I sometimes wish I could just pipe an object into another command rather than having to fight with awk and sed to get only the data that I want into the other command.

I am pretty sure that is in the XP cmd as well.
