Windows 7: best thing about windows 7

Windows 7 7600 (x86 & x64)
 
 

I like the new Aero features, i.e. Aero Snap, Peek and Shake. I use the snap feature all the time now. I know it's minor, but the same was with Vista too, I just loved the Instant search feature in the Start Menu. Most of the features in Seven that I've come to like are minor and I don't really notice them until I go back to Vista or XP.

wow I didn't know about the resource Monitor, just checked it out it's wonderfull!

Actually now that I think of it, it's good that microsoft are comming up with something really good to give to all their customers after making so much money , I used to hate microsoft as I was an IBM Fanboy, you see I'm an ex-IBMer, used to get jealous of how successfull microsoft are, but now I think they are doing something good with Windows 7, and I'm begining to like them again, I think windows 7 might be really big when it's released, maybe as big windows 95 back in those days...

Just wondering, what's the best thing you found in windows 7?

for me since I skipped vista, not sure if it's already in vista or not, but what I like the most is the search/run command as you see in the picture. you can type a part of the name of a program or any file and it will try to remember what you typed before , saves a lot of time I rarely have to go to the all programs to look for applications.
yeah thats my favorite part about vista. Its kinda old though, so favorite about windows 7 is jump lists.

Everything about Windows 7 is stable. I also love the performance enhancements and the improvements in security. Overall, Windows 7 is also more stable. I would have to say I love everything.

The new Superbar is also great. Jump lists help me go to the last webpages I viewed easily. And the Start Search helps me find anything without a hassle of going through the start menu. This is because Microsoft no longer wants people to use the start menu for them to start applications or so I heard somewhere.

Win 7, Home Premium
 
 

For those who have skipped Vista - almost everything. For older PCs owners (like me) reasonable resource demand. What is the best? I would say generally convenient organization, speed, stability in RC phase, useful search, and moreover ... this forum - tutorials, advices, etc.

you know XP was really OK, just got tiered in the end lol, it's boring, and I heard nightmares about vista.. also I was stuck with 512MB of ram because my old computer had RDRAM ( Rambus) and upgrading was more expensive than a new computer lol, eventually I heard w7 works with 512MB better than vista does, so I tried it and when I Did, it ran fine but kind of slow, so I got a new PC in the end
