Annoying windows behavior:

You cannot create a shortcut with a relative path to its target. This is annoying in the following situation. Say you want to create a shortcut that sets command arguments for an executable. Then say you would like this directory to be copied to another machine (say from a network drive) and have the shortcut reference the executable in the same directory. There is no way to do this with a shortcut.
