The super bar for example is not much different from quick launch, but now they've just combined the windows taskbar grouping option with quick launch to make everything look neat. It does not help the people who stay with xp, because they all want something new, BUT THEY ALL WANT THE SAME OLD XP STYLE. Windows 7 should be xp with more networking options and more 64 bit compatibility.
If a users comments really matter, they must fix the mistake that is windows 7
Wait, most people don't even know there is a 64-bit XP.
To enable quick-launch on 7, read this tutorial.
Yes, I actually do prefer WMP11 to 12. But I will get used to it.
Overall, I strongly believe Windows 7 is the best OS Microsoft ever released. Once people get used to it, it is much nicer than XP.
Just my opinion, I don't want to start a fight.

i'd like to say that i'm also against auto arrange. I'm a DJ and i like to have my folders scattered all around everywhere in a very specific file and access them this way, something i could too on Windows XP. Right now on Windows 7 i can't do that, which is very important for me and time saving.

It hasn't been more than 6 hours that i installed Win7 and i'm already reconsidering reinstalling XP. i want to move freely around my folders and look here and there (some kind of freedom the admins and moderators here don't seem to understand). not everybody likes stuff to be in order and want to do it their own way. that means that i want to move this friggin folder wherever i want and not by date,size etc.

Hello, Welcome to the Forums!
Windows 7 is a good OS, and it is going to be around for a while. Support for XP will dwindle, while little fixes like auto-arrange will come out, as time goes on. It is hardly advisable to ditch the new OS for one 9 years old, just for the sake of a few small irks.
That said, you are free to do what you want. If you need any help with 7, we will be happy to assist you.

well if there is not a chance but a reassurance that this "little" fix as auto arrange will be fixed within the upcoming weeks or in the nearest future possible i can bear with that but only for a little while. it's so frustrating when some abilities are given for so long and then the less thinkable yet most annoying thing gets removed off your privileges.

it's just that i like doing/moving/arranging/handling files and folders my way as i did for the past 9 years and not the way Microsoft wants.

Understood. I am just saying that I do not recommend throwing away the new OS in favor of one 9 years old.
