Overall I am very happy with this os.
One thing I am unsure about is the fact it attempts to install drivers during the installation without asking the user, so we end up not knowing exactly what was installed and what hasn't. I don't know, I just expected it to be a bit smarter, to advice users better on drivers. A lot of people might get inferior performance due to thinking they have all right drivers installed.

"Anyone else kind of disappointed?" -- YES
Yes I am still disappointed
I am still having bug and freeze problems on all of the computers that I have been testing on since the first release in November.
I am currently testing both x64 and x86 versions on 4 of my PC's and still having minor bug issues, and the major freeze problem.
I do not Just use my PC's for e-mails, browsing the web and gaming. I primarily use them for Engineering Design Work and they need lots of resources to operate efficiently. My primary Base unit is the one I do most of my work on and the Most efficient Operating system on it is Windows XP x64 (sp2) and customized. (Not the Basic install of services and registry sets).
The freeze issue is random and it happens when my PC's go into sleep mode. Some times the will wake up normally, but way to often they will not wake at all, I have to force re-boot. And no error logs related to sleep mode issues, only the E-ID 41 (forced re-boot). This has happened on all the releases from 7000 to 7127, and now 7600, the releases from 7137 to 7229 never had this problem. And this has happened on all my test PC's including Laptops and Desktops.
I have tried many changes in settings for Power Settings (Advanced), Network Adapter Settings, Monitor settings.
Ideally I want my Network Adapter to stay Active on my main box so I can access files from my other computers any time I need them, I want my HDD's to go to sleep when not in use so they will live for a while. and My Monitors to shut down when not in use.
All computers are Multi-Boot
Any one have any Ideas??

Are you applying a setting at any level that is drawn from your legacy bag of tricks?
For more than a year, I dealt with XP booting to svchost running at 50%/100% due to a customized network setting on my slipstream CDs. I knew it was somewhere in those settings because I finally solved the problem by installing from a slipstream that used default network settings. I burned an entire pack of CDs testing different slipstream configs. I still do not know what the actual setting was that caused the problem.
Something I "learned" and applied caused a major XP "bug". It spanned XP, XP SP1 and XP SP2 on every machine I ever installed it on.

Very disappointed with Win7 Core i7 DVD playback.
I have a Thinkpad W510. 8 GB RAM, running Win7 Pro 64-bit. My previous laptop was a Thinkpad T61 with 32-bit XP and 3 GB RAM. DVD playback on that machine was flawless, I could set up a DVD for the kids and never have to worry about it. There were no lags, no hiccups, no pauses. Playback on...

Disappointed in XP Mode :(
I'm disappointed in XP Mode because it refuses to run several programs which previously operated without a hitch in XP Professional. Windows Virtual PC installed without problem and, thereafter, FireFox v 3.6 and PCTools v 2010 installed, call-up and run fine. Others, e.g. Palm Pilot v 4.1,...
