Pro user wish list

Hello Rick,

Thanks for answering all our questions and suggestions. My wish list as a pro user and photographer is:

First and moist important to me: The OS has to be as stable as possible and mustn’t crash or freeze if a user application crashes.

Second; registration: I can understand why MS will do that but I think it should be just necessary the first time you install the system or if you move the OS to an other computer and: If MS has less piracy because of the registration they have less loss and the OS should get much cheaper for the end user!

And if I buy a new PC with preinstalled XP it should not be necessary to register, it should be done by Dell, HP, etc.

Also, I’d like that you support the fast USB 2 connection and not just Firewire.

I’d also like, if you support Bluetooth, e.g. for transferring pictures wireless from my camera with a Bluetooth CF card to my Laptop or to my Desktop PC in my studio.

The Pic-View in Explorer should support all common file types, not just jpg (e.g. tif, gif, PhotoShop, CorelPhotoPaint, Kodak PhotoCD(pcd), bmp, fpx, tga etc.)

And: I really hate Wizards, too! I hope there is a way for system administrators to do their job without using Wizards. They are good for the first or second time, but not if administrating PCs this is your daily job.
