Windows 7: Has Windows 7 changed the way you use your computer?

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32 bit/Windows 10 64bit

Don't think I can add much more than what has already been said.
I haven't altered how I use my machine that much since starting to use Windows 7 and I like it, but then I like Vista which I'll be going back to soon as funds wont allow a purchase of the OS when it comes out, that will be a few years down the line, so I don't think it's worth getting too comfortable using it only to be disappointed having to stop when it's out of Beta

Windows 7 Ult x64

The way different people use their machine is odd sometimes. A friend of mine seems to have this (massively irritating) 'window hygiene' thing going on whereby he is very reluctant to have more than one window open on his desktop at a time. He'll open program A to manipulate file a, then close A, then open Explorer, then locate file b, then open app A again, then close Explorer (repeat.....). He won't use tabs in IE8 because he 'doesn't like tabs' (I'm not making this up) and he uses IE8 because he 'hates Firefox'. Other than that, and the business with The Great Beast 666, you couldn't meet a nicer guy.
