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

I really do not like the system stability. The smoothness of the transition is a real let down, also. All of my drivers work well and that certainly detracts from learning anything new about the hardware.

I can say that I am glad that damned up arrow is gone. And the default Control Panel layout is a thing of beauty.

Oddly, I have a new found fondness for our Hoover.

I can't think of anything bad about it although it doesn't seem to have that glory of XP. One of the best things is that it is so small XP took up 2 gigs.

The way the icons stay orange once I've clicked the a program on the taskbar.

4. Gadgets are still ugly, and annoying to use. I'd rather it be like Mac OS X, where you push a key, and gadgets come up.
I've noticed that when i go into Windows Color and Appearance > (item)Caption Buttons and decrease the size, the superbar icons get smaller as well. Might just be my copy(although it happens to work on three different RC's) but you should give it a shot. Makes it look a bit off at times.

For me some annoyances are that I can't disable tap-to-click on the touchpad natively in windows, and every time I enter a flash thumbdrive windows media player wants to switch back to library view

I dont like the way the windows in the taskbar are coloured according to relevance if you know what I mean. For example I have two instances of WinRAR open, they both highlight red when I mouse over.
I know its only small but I can read, I can see the icon next to the label and I can clearly see that theyre both WinRAR. I dont see the need for ugly colours.

Only thing that I can't stand is the Control Panel layout. It's just a mass of icons now.

You can click on 'View by' and select small icons. This way is waaay less annoying.

Its still annoying though I find, I preferred the old classic layout.

Blue Screens

It just didn't like my hard drive and blue screens were a daily occurance. Had to go back to XP x64 on this box.

(works GREAT on my Lenovo x40, p.o.s. )

I'll second the "access to Network Properties" mentioned by several others. It IS a nuisance to drill down to network and wireless network properties.
