If you haven't noticed, Aero Snap does more than just maximize a window. It will Maximize only the height, help divide the screen with 2 windows and other such things. I felt the same as you when I first encountered it, but I am back on Vista now and that is one of the things I am going to miss.

Check out the tutorials Shawn posted.
