To answer the original posters question, features that I would like to see built into Windows 7 include
1). ability to mount an ISO file without having to install 3rd party tools
2). virtual desktop support
Mounting an ISO would be a great idea.

Perhaps the capability to burn and play BluRay discs?

Absolutely, and it's something that every single distribution of Linux that I have ever used has always been able to do. And I started using Linux myself back in 1998.

This would be a great idea, and VERY useful.

I would like to see a substantial improvement in Windows' Media Player. Microsoft seems to have abandoned its development. Windows' users who want a decent dvd/blue-ray player on their pc are left to choose from third party softwares like Arcsoft's TMT 5 or Cyberlink's PowerDVD 10 Ultra II. I have the latter and am VERY pleased with it. I don't expect that Microsoft will want to compete with these softwares because of cost considerations but improving upon its Media Player should be one of its considerations in Win8.

i think a virtual drive for mounting would be a great improvement... and native .rar support...

Good to know. That feature is at least 4 versions and 10 service packs late.

Well, finally the ability to mount an ISO file. My Linux boxes were mounting ISO files back in 1999.

I'm sure "part" of the reason this is coming so late to Windows is that Microsoft would have stepped on plenty of toes of third parties like daemon tools and such which have provided this ISO mounting utility. Just like MSE, I think they often wait to come to the party way late giving the 3rd parties plenty of time to gain their userbase.
