What would you like in Windows?

  1. Hi there,

    I am working on developing a free operating system, and I was wondering what you guys would like in an operating system.

    Thanks,

    There's already a ton of *nix flavours floating around the web. Pick something that they aren't doing and make it unique to your OS.

    Otherwise, I dunno, Windows wins the day pretty much. We can get any and all programs.

    Options to install or not to install features. I may or may not want the following that could be bundled in an OS:
    • File Manager
    • Media Player
    • Web Browser
    • Partition Manager
    • Defrag Utility
    I think you get the picture.

    What I really would like for Windows, is an option to select a slower drive for cached files. There is no need in Windows keeping backup files on a SSD drive which is cramped for space as it is. I'd like the option to select which drives are used for which purpose. There is no need in struggling for space on an SSD, when all the trash (which is probably 60% of Windows Installation) can be stored on a platter drive for periodic lookups.
