Things I'd like to see in Windows

You can tell a machine running [a sufficiently recent version of] Windows to use "fast user switching", which means I can log in as an Administrator (or another user) to do something without having to log myself out.

You can also get two screens plugged into a Windows machine, and extend your desktop across both screens, which means I can run one application on one screen and another on the other.

What I'd quite like at the moment is to have one screen logged in as me, and the other screen logged in as an Administrator (or another user), and to switch sessions by sliding my mouse from one screen to the other... and Windows can't do it. I have to keep switching users, and I can't look at both sessions at the same time.

Boo to Windows!
