What's the performance difference? I haven't noticed any difference over Vista in performance, although it's much faster than XP, so was Vista.

I never had Vista, so some of what seems new and cool to me isn't totally new. That said....
Aero Snap
Aero Peek
Snip Tool
Pin and un-pin to taskbar
Libraries grew on me
Boots way faster than my old XP machine(although that could be hardware related)

I'm sure there's more, but these are the things that immediately come to mind.

Windows Search

Disc at once burning with WMP. (Nice not having to install a 3rd party app. just to burn a continuous CD)

Snipping Tool

And pretty much everything else associated with the OS. Everything just works.(Well...Mostly everything)

I love the new taskbar and having iso burning built in. I also like the image backup feature. I know there are free ones that are better, but I the built in one works just fine for me. I like the snipping tool, the new and improved calculator and ease of connecting to a network. I like the Homegroups feature. It makes connecting all your wireless devices at home a breeze. It is by far the best OS Microsoft has ever released. XP was good, but it is outdated and Windows 7 is the best of XP and Vista combined + some new innovations. Vista introduced a lot of new features and cool stuff on an OS and Windows 7 perfected them(well most of them).

Maximizing a window by dragging it to the top of the screen.
Now, when using machines with an older OS I always try that and then realize that feature didn't exist yet...

Lol that's a true one, I tend to do that when I'm on a computer that has XP or Vista, but luckily at work they have already upgraded to 7.

I like the "snipping tool" very useful, easy
to use and saves a lot of time for someone like me who uses screenshots a lot!
I truly hope that Windows 7 is not used for mission critical applications. Let's see now, 100 games of Hearts played, 39 won that's 38% right ?????

Like others have mentioned, now that I've used Win 7 for a awhile, I hate going back to XP. It's like going from XP to 98Se was, yuck!
