Windows 7: I need the best OS and i'm really not sure about Win 7

The way I'm used to working .. I can't see what I have on my Desktop.
I'm also not allowed to Customize my Image file Icons

I have found out how to crack the registry to customize the R Click Context menu ..
So I don't always have to take the "Open With" > "Multiple Choice Test" Route ...
One click and I'm there.

In W7 .. You can NOT create a new task bar and park it on any edge of your screen(s)
You can only park a new Task Bar in the Windows Task bar .. What good does it do there ??
This WAS a nice feature if you're running twin screens.

The OP did say he was working with Images ..
I thought I'd contribute the W7 annoyances I've found so far...
And the reasons why I'm staying with XP

An OS is just a collection of tools (More or Less) .. Don't take it Personal ...
I wasn't trying to insult anyone's Spouse or Kids
Ok now i understand how you use these examples :)

I personally mainly use Windows 7, because I have a powerful computer and if something happens to go wrong I have backups of my data, I would just reinstall it.
