I used Vista since March 2007 then upgraded to 7 in February of this year so a lot of the stuff in 7 isn't new to me but what is new is definitely worth it. At first, I didn't like the idea but Libraries have grown on me and now, going back to Vista or XP, oh boy do I miss that.

Now, when using machines with an older OS I always try that and then realize that feature didn't exist yet...
Strangely enough, I do like that feature as well. Also, I like the fact that the taskbar stays transparent when a window is maximized. I don't like the title bar to do that but the taskbar is just perfect.
Speaking of which, slideshow ... what a great feature. Love cycling through a bunch of wallpapers. Why have the dilemma of choosing one wallpaper when I can have a bunch of them. The fact that I can access the Downloads folder as well as Videos Library straight from the Start Menu now.
And of course the performance enhancements are all very welcomed as well as the enhanced and less annoying UAC. All in all, Windows 7 improved on Vista very nicely. Going back to Vista is acceptable but I do miss some of the 7 features, especially Libraries. Going back to XP though is just dreadful and quite frankly, if I can avoid using it, I do. I mainly end up using XP because most of my customers have older PCs that run that OS but 7 is most preferred for me.
