2 things improved from Vista to 7 not stressed enough

I'm an average tech fan. I can't say I am an expert on PCs, but I do like having access to cut of the edge technology. I installed Vista Ultimate x64 when it came out, and now I installed 7 Ultimate x64. Here's a short list of 2 things that pleasantly suprised me:

-Windows Media Center finally pics up live TV channels in Greece from go. I was never able to do that with Vista. I don't know if something could have been done, I tried to but failed numerous times, but WMC from W7 is funtional without the need of expert tampering. I suspect that it's the same with many other countries.

-Bluetooth File Transfer utility! No need for that awful software from Bluesoleil

DriverGenius Pro keeps picking up the BT drivers need updating and it's those Bluesoleil drivers it wants to install - Why?

Thank you. Allthough I've been lurking around for quite a while... I really liked Vista as well. Towle, I'm sorry, I don't know the answer to your questions...
