    Even though I use both XP and Vista I didn't realise so many XP features were missing from within Vista?

    some of those things im glad they are removed.
    im glad internet explorer is seprate from windows explorer.
    im glad i cant having a flying out start menu. i hate the all programs on windows xp now looks so cluttered.
    some things removed are legacy and no longer needed. vista takes enough disc space as it is without keeping legacy stuff.

    The removal of Active (web) Desktop :thumb: Now no malware can hijack your wallpaper such as Valsup (?). I don't personally know anyone that uses it. I certainly don't and remember WinMe driving me nuts with it coming on by itself at times.

    The File Type/Default Program thing would tick me off real good too. Good ol' XP.
