Future Tense: Bottom Ten Windows Annoyances

Quote:
All the other articles list the top ten Windows Annoyances. I’m going to list the bottom ten. These are things that work, but they’re sloppy.

Maybe the programmers thought good enough was good enough. It isn’t. Maybe the programmers forgot to stress-test their work. They should have. Maybe they didn’t think about the actual work environment where their software would be running. Oops.

Every OS has it's annoyances (for OS X, the whole OS is an annoyance to me, Linux + high end Radeon HD cards can be glitchy, etc).

Two annoyances
It's a new system and I'm still getting used to it but two things bug the devil out of me...first, I hate these over-sized icons. They use up maybe three times as much real estate as the icons in Xp. Is there anyway to make them smaller or swap them out? Second, I hate the gadget at the top...

We all know Windows 7 is a great OS. However, that doesn't mean there aren't a few annoyances about it. Only a couple stick in my head atm, and they really grate my cheese, but i come across them quite prolifically and they bug the hell out of me. (If this topic has already been started, please...
