Will Vista include more windowsettings for the user?

    It would be nice if we were able to change the opacity of every window with a slidercontrol within the windows standard UI.
    with the new DWM it shouldn't be that difficult to realise this.
    the slider could be in the right click menu of a specific window in the taskbar or the opacity could be changed with a key-combo...

    Also it would be nice to have a checkbox option by default in the OS to put specific windows in the front of all other windows. This is currently only possible if a specific program supports it but most programmers forget to implement it...

    What other small but important additions might help better organizing program windows?

    I have personally never seen the need for the former and only occasionally for the latter, but I do know there are about a gazillion third party apps that let you do either one.
