best thing about windows 7

hi guys,

Just wondering, what's the best thing you found in windows 7?

for me since I skipped vista, not sure if it's already in vista or not, but what I like the most is the search/run command as you see in the picture. you can type a part of the name of a program or any file and it will try to remember what you typed before , saves a lot of time I rarely have to go to the all programs to look for applications.

It is in Vista, but it is also something I cannot live without now as well. Very useful tool.

Not sure what my favourite thing about W7 is, but it would include Aero, the start search, and everything in general.

I agree on the search bar, for me it has to be its so stable, I was having so many issues with Vista SP1, when Win7 beta came out I jumped onto it and have been happy ever since.

When i had XP i had to sort the programs dir in start menu every week, by deleting usless links and creating like 'utility' and 'multimedia' dirs. Now with the search bar i don't care. Just type in what ya need and you are done.

It is indeed a great feature.

Probably my single most favorite feature is the Resource Monitor.

It was good in Vista and it's incredible in W7. Tells you almost everything about what is "going on" at any moment on your mchine. Why is my net active? Why is my HD running like crazy? Where has my memory gone?

It combines several other older graphical and command line tools in one very convenient spot.

As with most things that get better, it leads you to think of ways it could be improved EVEN MORE heh, but it's SO much better than the nothing in XP and it's first attempt in Vista. I'd like to shake the hands of the little team/person who worked on that.

My fave things are :

Jump lists and overall speed of the OS. Ive run XP and Vista in the past ( Still dual booting with Vista now) and W7 beats the both easily IMO and its not even RTM yet WMP12 is nice as well.

Speed. 7 is much faster and XP or Vista IMO.

All the other Version had need a time after there release to be accepted.

In the last Time Microsoft (has learn perhaps learned of there faults) bring a lot of good Software...
