Windows 7 look nice features but there some problems: 1) WEI seem didnt working prefect 2) Explorer.exe kept crashing 3) no 4-colour MS logo during Bootup screen I think there some bugs in Windows 7 so i havent decide to stay or go back to Vista - I havent problems with Vista as I have some problems in Windows 7 so maybe I go back to Vista and wait for Win 7 fix the problem or new Windows 8. Windows 7 suppose to be working and suppose all hardwares but seem MS change some in OS system that softwares still sturggle to work with it (some software still not support until next version is release)

My biggest issue with Windows 7 is that it's harder to customize your theme than in earlier versions. I had to go to 3 different control panels to finally get everything I wanted. I have no idea why they changed that.

A minor issue is that there is no toolbar in the right-click menu to get back the Quick Launch toolbar. I had to manually add it as a toolbar. I don't like the new "pin" feature.

I dont know how you installed it, but I noticed installing it over Vista doesnt work as well as a fresh install! Otherwise you might have had a driver issue or something.

I have had Both 90% less BSOD and 20% speed increase over Vista!

I don't like how there are still bugs with HOMEGROUP.
I set it to share everything (docs, music, printer, etc). Save. Come back to the screen, only printer is checked.

Also, can not join homegroup I made on PC, with my laptop via wireless.

When you have Firefox open and you are downloading something with Firefox's download manager, then when you are window switching and you want to switch back to Firefox when you are in another program, you first have to click on Firefox, then you have to choose whether you want to browse the web or look at my downloads...

Put control panel into large icons mode, and it is quite useful.. imo..

I thought I was the only one who still feels gutted about this control panel thing, I mean why create 256x256 icons only to show them as 32x32... GOD!! Windows 7 is great but I get sick every time I need to go to the control panel and be reminded of that....

How did you manage to do that?

Microsofts inability to publish all the FAQs. upon launch. They hold back to much basic information. You are supposed to buy thier product and then spend 10 hours gathering information on the Web-- Why do you play this game Steve???

my experience hasn't been great. after installing this Fri night, I had to get a tech to fix it. I still don't have my pst reinstalled. blocked out even after the Take Ownership. My cursor is jumping all over the place and takes 4x as long to type something, I don't know how do find files - I can see it mapped to a certain path - ie Local\appdata\microsoft... but if I try and find it myself, i can't find it. search doens't pull up anything. I am a frequent computer user but not a techie and I figure for the average suer, this is definitely going to be a change.

Overall I'm happy with Win7 except for 2 things.

1. They removed the frickin pinned favorites from windows explorer. I NEED THAT MS!!!!

2. EAC will no longer retrieve CD titles from freedb for me.

Other than that, quite happy with it.
