Windows 8 has a fancy delete progress dialog window for long-running delete operations. It shows:
- the number of items being deleted,
- percentage complete,
- instantaneous speed of deletion (items/second),
- a graph of historical speed of deletion for this operation,
- estimated time remaining, and
- items remaining (count and size)
