I would say something like the others, some incompatibility with older programs and hardware. My front stereo and microphone jacks are not working since it was installed.

I would also point out about Microsoft not changing the Registry Editor, they should have at least made an MMC snap in for that and also things like the Task Manager that could really use some renovation in the user interface.

Windows 7 is perfect apart from:
-Aligning icons to grid while set to small size seems to make them miles apart.
-Classic theme doesn't have classic start menu.
-Start 'orb' invades work area when taskbar is at top.

Oh, and Alt+arrow doesn't rotate the screen anymore.

It's supposed to be CTRL+ALT+Arrow to rotate the display. It works fine on my laptop with Windows 7.

Instead of using 3 keys to move a window, you can now use 2 in Windows 7. Press Windows Button + ANY Arrow

That moves the window, but doesn't flip the display. Not sure why it doesn't work for you psychfunk, works for me...

It kind of does:
  • When active windows is on the right display, two times Win + Left Arrow snaps it to the right on the left display
  • When active windows is on the left display, two times Win + Right Arrow snaps it to the left on the right display
Very practical sometimes, because on multi display systems it is the only way to snap a window to the side if there exists an additional display on that side.
