They would, I'd suspect, have had as many complaints about it as they did with the over-the-top UAC fiasco on Vista which they were happy to hasten on its way, but they just don't seem to be responding on this one.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
Not just Concorde but, jets in general are slightly slower nowadays than they were some 20+ years ago, from what I understand it's to do with fuel economy and probably man made global warming - although Munchies_Matt knows much more about that than I do
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
It is because of fuel economy and hence running costs..
Modern jets use turbo fan engines which are a lot more economical but are a larger diameter than tradition jet engine of yesteryear. You just need to look at the diameter of an engine from a old photo of a Boeing 707 compared to a modern jet.
The large diameter engine is vastly superior on fuel and hence running cost, but are bit more of a drag. Thus reduced speed.
