I was initially frustrated with Win7. But, it's so much more capable and sophisticated than XP, it's worth it. Vista was a step I wish I had missed.

There are some places in Windows Explorer where Folder Options:Apply isn't available. For example, Computer and any folder in Libraries. I'm guessing this is because they're aggregates instead of unique places on disk.

The first thing I do after OS installation is undo the hiding of any files and set unique Folder Options for pics, videos, music and other files.
