Whatever happened to the good old progress bar?

Does anyone else miss the progress bar that actually shows how close something is to being finished? I really don't like the one that behaves like an old Nintendo game. It gets to the end only to come out the other side again. What's the purpose?

    I'm not sure who's idea this was, but it was a dumb one. What really gets me is that they haven't corrected it. It's been in there since Vista. Does Microsoft really not see how dumb this is? Makes me wonder if they even use Windows themselves.
