Windows 7: What don't you like about Windows 7?

It seems the pc has gone from being keyboard based to having to use a mouse. I prefer to use a keyboard and in 7 I get so confused with everything. Especially when some keys dont do anything anymore.

Another thing: taht it takes sooo long to recognize that you connected a device again.
sure, the first time that you plug something in it needs to find the drivers, bet the next time that you plug it in it should be like "Oh! you again" and reapply the driver settings. Comparitively, when i ran linux on this computer it recognized the mouse again instantly and i could use it right away.
This is the same for wired and wireless, with wireless being a touch more difficult because I had to kludge up a driver for my Apple magic mouse. If I'm just waking up the computer after a minute it works, but if i had turned off bluetooth to save power i have to reset the driver.

I believe Windows 7 has built in support for the HTCPCP/1.0 coffee pot control protocol.

1)It's not XP
2)Big icons on the desktop, compared to XP.
3)Compabality Issue.
4)No Quick Launch, the show desktop button is on the bottom right.
After using XP for such a long time, I guess it's the little things that make a difference
That's pretty much it...I thought there would be A LOT more when I was installing Win7.

#4 "No Quick Launch"

Heh that one go tme too till I realized that the ENTIRE task bar IS a quick launch bar Just pin your use every day icons to it and they sit there and when launched they do not take up any more space.

Hi everyone, I'm the new kid on the block, actually 67, but I just noticed that you cannot drag and rearrange photos in a folder anymore in W7. What gives?
