These are my thoughts on some of the things you wrote:

I already do this with DUST, which makes switching between users as easy as
using ALT + TAB to switch between apps. http://www.waybeyonduk.com/DUST/

Some of those ideas are just silly, like 3D Flip wasn't useless enough, you
want more of it. Some of them are already available with Firefox, or by
using the Google Toolbar.
IE8 is already going to be CSS 2.1 compliant, and making it CSS 3 compliant
would be pretty difficult seeing as it hasn't even been finalised yet, let
alone CSS 3.1. http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/current-work#table

Vista 64-bit already requires all drivers to be certified.

Windows Server 2008 is a lot more modular, and Windows 7 probably will be
more modular as well.

That would slow the OS down a lot. Vista is already slow and bloated. What
they need to do is go in the opposite direction with the next release.

They priorities what needs to be done, and Windows is something that evolves
rather than gets completely rewritten with every release.
