"Calculating time remaining..." - my vote for Most Worthless Vista Dialog 2006
Ok, this one is pretty annoying.

It pops-up even when the operation should be instantaneous (like deleting a
single file from your hard drive), which seems to make the operation
significantly slower than it should be.

I goes from annoying to worthless, though, by not telling you anything even
when it would be handy: I just copied a large file to a server, and it
didn't say anything other than "calculating time remaining" for the entire
15 minutes that it took to copy.

XP's wildly varying and innacurate estimates were much better than this!

Yeah, I noticed that after posting the message, too. "Uh... you know... if
you take THAT and divide it by THIS, you'll get..." Maybe they just didn't
want users getting too lazy and dependent on their computers.

It's not a total waste of a dialog, though - they do seem to have spent some
quality time getting the little 3D-ish animation looking nice...

Here's to SP1!!
