Windows Vista continues to lose features. Today’s chopping block includes Monad, the virus-enabled command shell no different than a dozen other Unix shells. Good riddance. Of course, with all the other things being cut or “delayed”, it’s becoming harder for Microsoft to figure out a way to convince their customers that upgrading to Vista is worth the time and (let’s face it) hassle.

This is all summed up quite nicely in a post from Slashdot:

So that leaves Vista with the following features I guess:

– Slick ‘Vista’ wallpaper
– DRM to protect the wallpaper

Rock on!
