Windows 7: I got the RTM. Anything I should know?

I got the RTM. Anything I should know?

I upgraded to the official RTM from 7232. Are there any new little tweaks? Would my games and apps run faster? Also, when does it expire?

For tweaks, try this free app. It contains lots of very useful tweaks you can apply (and unapply) just by checking (or unchecking) some boxes: Ultimate Windows Tweaker v2, a Tweak UI for Windows 7

That really adds nothing new. In fact, every single one of those tweaks could be done by right-clicking the taskbar, or by using the control panel.

I don't think that's entirely correct. Perhaps I am mistaken but I didn't see any way in control panel or right clicking the taskbar to add "Move to folder," "Copy to Folder," and "Take Ownership" to the explorer right click context menu, to name a few examples.

In fact, imo, several of the tweaks in that app would require editing the registry to add or remove them. Much easier to just check (or uncheck) a box, for most people.

But never mind anyway. Guess next time I'll think twice before trying to offer any helpful suggestions.
