Windows 7

Hmm well theres a few....

1. The ability to have all my icons next to eachother in the taskbar when its pinned to the right of my screen with out having to do it through the quick launch folder trick.

2.Completely hide the time / date and all the icons with the click of a button that would open and close it.( I just look at my keyboard for the time ( G15) )

3. Ability to center your start icon and all your icons to the center of the task bar.

4. A better search. I had to run diskmgmt or somethign along the lines of that and It wouldn't pop up until I completely typed out the entire program name including the file extension

5. Windows Media Player / Center to support MKV =P

I think thats it for now just minor ones!

Curious to see what others have to say!

Features Question - Program & Features
I see where one of the performance enhancements recommended is to disable unneeded "Features" in the Program & Features section of Control Panel. The impact of disabling some of the features is obvious, but in some cases it's not so obvious whether I need to leave a feature installed or not based...
Performance & Maintenance
Is it me, or does Windows 7 not have many new features?
I mean, I love it.. IT's the fastest OS I have ever worked on with a Windows platform. But, I really don't see anything that I would use on an everyday basis. All I see, is Homegroups, an improved taskbar and extreme increase in speed. What am I missing?
