Yeah, could not agree more. How is it with this latest, greatest OS we took a giant step backwards in process handling. Oh, sure, there are a ton of nags that come with everything now that you cannot get turned off (such as the normal operation of sending an encrypted email having the OS ask you for permission to use your certificate to encrypt the email.. but always defaulting to 'deny'). But to now not be able to kill a process? Come one. Unix had this in the bag in the 1970's.... and now windows is back to where it was in the 1990's... which is way worse than Unix of the 1970's?
