no...it's m$ loss and that's my point
Microsoft isn't going to hurt over it, trust me. There is enough good buzz around Windows 7, that a few holdouts who'd rather use a dying OS isn't going to make much of a difference.

they have already loss a great amount due to pirates copies / cracks / serial keygens ect ect... ( hell windows 7 is already sold on some countries(asia) inside fake illegal boxes )

1-10 people that wont upgrade because they hate to adapt to changes? not a big loss for m$

Mercurial
They haven't lost a thing over pirated copies as yet. In fact, they haven't actually turned on all the validation protection that is included. I think you'll be surprised in the coming weeks.

my family all hates the windows 7 new 'superbar'.
change is not something people usually want forced on them ive noticed. you would think they would have learned that by now.
as for me personally, i use my desktop for downloads and manipulation of files (just as a desk should be used hehe) and temporary places for edited materials. i dont ever use the 'download' folders and such.

being that this is the case, i too have to say i cannot stand and despise the new taskbar as well.

the reason for this for me, is since my desktop IS my desktop, i use the old quicklaunch bar for quickly loading apps.
the rest of the bar is where i can see every single window i have open. the new taskbar forces you to click then find-visually search then click again for a web page, instead of me just seeing it right *their* emediatly where i want it to get it like usual. same for chat or other things. the old bar i can just click their chatname and boom their it is. no searching. no hassle. instant. grouping of windows, hiding icons, and crap like that is always something i turn off on installing a m$ os. also dont care for the default big huge ass icons. yes changed that back to small. i also always put BACK the menu bars they seem to have taken out from everywhere... (msn, ie, explorer, player, etc)
anyways, this 'super' bar is a step back for me in productivity not forwards.

fortunately i can still force windows 7 to have this 'superbar' to be gone and bring back my old one thanks to some websites that explain how. they should have left it as a simple option to contiue to use instead.
ive had to do this for my family members as well. hehe

anyways.. yuck. no sir, i dont like it. if i wasnt able to get the old one back theirs several people over here that wouldnt have used windows 7 at all.

instead of removing options, they should keep the options available that people have been using for a long time; not hiding them. it should be the opposite. made something new? then make it as a new option to use, not the default. options are nice to have. 'depreciation'? yea ok...

had a friend that bought a new laptop then found out their were no xp drivers for it at all, and ended up installing linux/openoffice on it. this is how bad some folks have not taken kindly to vista and 7 so far. just a fact to keep in mind.

some people on here seem to think that if you force people to be around something enough they will get use to it and like it (employees?), instead of giving them alternatives or options.

stockholm syndrom isnt kosher to me. what ever happened to if its not broken dont fix it?
The simple answer for you is that you should have stuck with Windowx XP and I would encourage you to reinstall it immediately.

its hard to tell on here being all text, with such short answers if someone is actually speaking from the kindness of their heart, or just being a trolling a-hole fan boi with answers telling you to just use something else...

i think my response was pretty thought out and realistic. i beleive we can not like something and have options. why treat people as crap if they dont join the bandwagon?

i do beleive in karma.. so if those responses were actually meant as kind somehow.. then i honestly i thank you for the response; and if it was the other.. well. your own condemnation will get to you eventually.

Dont you think words like love and hate are overly powerful words to ascribe to a feature in an operating system???

Confusing a bit, brother... on my taskbar, set at 'always combine, hide labels', when an app is open, the icon is automatically 'highlighted', letting me know it's open... at least it does this on my computer and Win7 install. It's different on yours?
Thanks.

No it's not different on my computer. I simply prefer that the difference between a shortcut and a started application be more obvious.

I don't think I actually this answered this question properly a year ago but I very much like the superbar.

After using it for over a year and a half, it was definitely a good idea on MS's behalf.

If you love Windows XP, youíll hate Windows 7 by Ed Bott
If you love Windows XP, you’ll hate Windows 7 Posted by Ed Bott My colleague Jason Perlow has been playing with Windows 7, and he hates it. The sad thing is, all the things he hates are improvements, in my opinion, which just goes to show that you really can’t please everyone. But what’s...
