Hmm, I think that the libraries are very handy. They allow me to group files/folders from all over my disks/partitions without moving them. I even have Vista folders in my Win7 libraries. Thus they are always in sync.
I guess that would be pertinent if the thread was titled "What do you like about windows 7"...but alas, it is not.

What is that supposed to mean?

I have nightmares when I think Seven without UAC. I thank Gods from every possible religion that Microsoft is finally getting there to simplify sys admins job and making it more difficult for a user to make a big mess.

+1, as written above.
Hmm, it's a negative to me. I guess if it isn't a negative to everyone, I should keep my mouth shut about it, eh? That's fine if you think it's a good thing, but to me and a LOT of my friends it is annoying as heck. I wasn't aware you could tell me if I thought it was a negative or not.

It is an absolute mystery to me how on earth you could come to that conclusion!?!

The only way to understand that comment is that you yourself think like that; that if people have another opinion than yours, they should keep their mouths shut about it. I had no idea you did not want to hear comments and opinions opposing yours.

My +1 was to show that I share Logicearth's opinion. I'm asking you, politely and sincerely, to tell me what's wrong with that?

My point is that it's supposed to be a topic about negatives. That's a negative. If it's a positive to you, it doesn't belong here.

This thread has at the moment over 160 pages of posts, yours quoted here above is post #1,608. At least a couple of hundred of those posts have clearly been about a user fault or misunderstanding, quite a many about problems caused by third party software and / or drivers, nothing to do with Windows 7.

Only possibility to correct these misunderstandings or show the poster where the fault is, is to post a response here. Sometimes it is positive.

I'm sorry if you don't like it. I ask you to read this thread through: a big part of the posts are quite positive.

To please you, I will bail out from this conversation now. I am truly sorry I upset you by opposing your opinion.

Still sincerely, Kari

Ok, the problem isn't that *nix does some things in certain ways. The issue is why does MS insist on doing the things it does.

For instance, two people commented on my question about having to be in an Admin shell to create symlinks by saying that you have to do a number of things as Admin in *nix operating systems. Well yea, but that's not the point.

Why do I have to be in an Admin shell to create a Symlink? That makes no sense at all, I do NOT have to use SU or SUDO (note the correct spelling) in *nix to make a simple symbolic link, and they are extremely useful. Why does a common every day user in Windows have to learn to jump through the UAC hoops to create simple symbolic links?

Why do they have to find a 3rd party piece of software to do it without a command line?

Those are the questions that plague many of us. Why doesn't MS trust the user? And don't give me the "because users are all dumb" argument, lest you reveal yourself as a MS employee.

I've been a SW Engineer, Sysadmin and security engineer for three decades, so I know of which I speak. Microsoft finally got around to understanding User access and permissions. But they fail to understand some really basic things. And to be honest it mostly looks like they are afraid of appearing that they are copying ideas from other operating systems. Which is just dumb, since they've been stealing stuff from everyone else for decades anyway.

@Wreck, the target audience Microsoft is aiming there product for has no need for creating Junctions, Hardlinks, or Symlinks outside of special cases. So why should they make UI tools for something less then 0.5% of people are going to use? They built the fundamentals into the system, let third-party developers expose them for those who need it.

Real people, like my mother and grandmother, have no need for creating Junctions, Hardlinks, Symlinks.

Exactly, cannot agree more - and the same 0.5% are then going to complain about all the bloat in the UI.
