10 Features Longhorn needs – A WinCustomize Article by Brad Wardell

Great list of stuff to see in Longhorn. Reading the comments looks like this is definitely a thorough top 10 that most can agree with. Personally, I think XP SP2 WiFi made great strides and I’m pretty happy with it. What I’d love to see in #6 (networking) is the abilitiy to make IP stack config changes from the command line.

I often find myself doing testing from my laptop between multiple VLANs on my network and the ability to turn on/off DHCP, specify static IP addresses, subnet, gateway, DNS, etc. from the command line would make my life a lot easier. It’s pretty darn slow to go to the Start Menu, Connect to…, Show all…, right-click on the interface in question, properties, make changes on multiple tabs, hit OK and wait 60 seconds while Windows figures out what the hell it’s doing. But I’m not bitter. 🙂
