Your Favorite Feature in Win7

I am very new to win7. I have been using xp since 2005. With all these new features I am sure I have not stumbled upon some of the best. What is your favorite feature and why? This will give me some insite as to what I am missing out on.

Thanks,
Steve

Oh and Happy Holidays to everyone.

My fav feature of the moment is the 'snipping tool' (but I change daily ). It's a nice little way to capture a screen print and although it reminds me of the mac I'm not complaining.

I'm also a huge fan of Win7 of tablet PC's, the touch screen is amazing.

I like the Libraries feature best, as it allows me to maintain single Videos, Pictures, Documents "folders", when in reality all of those various file types are spread across 8 hard drives. It make file management a breeze.

Second would be the Search functions. It operates way faster than it ever could on Vista, and when used in combination with your regular Explorer functions, actually makes using a computer fun again (unlike the thankfully retired dinosaur that was XP)

There's a lot more features of 7 that I like, but the Libraries and Search are my favorites.

The new task bar and the new resource monitor (available from the task manager).

And before someone says something yes it was in Vista but in W7 it is MUCH better

I too, like the new task bar feature of open apps and quick launch apps icons being one and the same.

Not sure how good the speech recognition in Vista was, but the SR in 7 is unbelievably awesome. At least it is for me, using a mic near my mouth, rather than a desk mounted or bezel mic.

The half screen thing...I LOVE it.

Except I normally do iTunes/MSN in one and Firefox in the other. I never actually do 2 Firefox windows, that's just dumb.
