Here's the one & only thing I don't like about W7.

It wasn't offered to the regular Beta testers (Seven testers in general) for a big discount for all the bug reports & input during testing or offered 1 free copy.

Instead our reward for all that work (not to mention TONS of PR advertising) & testing was a "Thank you" & now go pay FULL price for the OS if you want it...

Do you mean the public release, or the invite only beta?
Invite only beta testers received a free copy.
As for the public release, I can understand why no discount was offered considering the sheer number of people who downloaded.

The whole beta test program was run on more than one level

There was the closed invite only beta and the open public beta but there were also various telemetry level options available to public testers who were willing to run a constant reporting program for Microsoft for a period of time. As far as I am aware the full beta testers and the telemetry providers, who completed the required time, were all offered free copies of windows 7.

This is I think a considerable number of people but I can fully understand the lack of any offer to the "Basic" public testers, as Antt has said this would be an immense number.

Because it is a commercial product made by a commercial company? And commercial companies are in business for the purpose of making money, are they not? I fail to see a problem with a business out to make money....

There is nothing to gain from having a means to strip components out of the OS. Just more issues to deal with.
And the point of leaving unused apps on the HD taking up space is...? The whole point is to "minimize the bloat", so things I use can return. Perhaps I misunderstand. If it's disabled, not using Ram, and just sitting there taking up space on my hard drive, how can never installing it cause problems?? Thank you for clarifying the Ram question. It is precious.

That's what I have, it's a silent laptop using a HDMI cable and Realtek HD audio. Both audio devices are only 5.1 surround and they can't be combined into a single 9.1 surround device.

I'm a bit into home theater and I know quite a number of people running 5.1, some at 6.1 and the rest at 7.1....but I'm not aware of most home theater users running a 9.1 setup. I don't find it odd whatsoever that Windows 7 doesn't support 9.1. But hey, to each his own.

Evidently sound is not as important to you as it is for some. Some people do watch movies on their PCs, and like to listen to high quality audio. With the newer high def, larger monitors, and killer sound cards, this is not as absurd as it seems. Although the "Majority" might not have or be able to afford higher end systems, this (I feel) is a valid issue considering the point/theme of the thread. It may fall upon the people who make the sound cards to write the drivers for them however.
