Windows 7 is a very big improvement over Vista. Much faster and I like the new task bar and notification area.

I'm shocked.

It runs DECENTLY, and I've been running the RC for a few weeks now without a crash. :D

Only complaint so far is the libraries thing. That kinda confuses me -- I want the old links to My Docs, Pictures, etc. back -- I used them more.

Igor, you should try the Windows 7 RC at least -- I think I've got a spare 64bit key somewhere that you could use.

For everyone who didn't get it, the guy in the picture in the first post is Linus Torvalds, the founder of linux.

I'm running a pirated RTM version on my desktop, and got a free upgrade for my new laptop. I'm taking that with both hands. I simply love Windows 7. Everybody who stuck with XP when Vista came out will have a fantastic upgrade experience.

My complaints: expensive, so pirate.

It's sort of a collection of folders. You can still use your old links I think, just add them to to favorites menu and purge the libraries. :P

If you're a college student (I'm not sure if it's only Americans or not), you can get 7 pro for $30 at win741.com. I got it, and it's awesome.

My uni also gave me an MSDNA account. If you have access to one of those, you can download it and use it for free for the remainder of your course :)

I thought it would also look better then Vista..?
The only change I found (searching quickly in the BCC store because I have Snow Leopard) is the menubar which is a littlebit higher and coloured more nicely..The pity of the design is that it was old so fast.. :|

No, the promise of Windows 7 was never to look better then Vista. The promise of Windows 7 was that it would be Vista, but usable.

The taskbar in a nutshell. If you didn't notice, the behaviors of the taskbar have changed. Programs aren't displayed as individual items with a title anymore, but they are displayed as big icons, and every window a program has open will be stacked on the program's icon in the taskbar. You can view these windows by [url=http://www.epic-win.com/misc/win7taskbar.png]hovering over, or clicking on the icon[/url] and to actually go to the window itself, you click on it.(you'll find more of this on the microsoft website) Another improvement to the taskbar is "[url=http://www.epic-win.com/misc/win7tasks.png]Tasks[/url]". Never programs support it others mostly do not, however, it does speed up a lot of things. Regarding the colour, by default the taskbar colour is light blue, but it now takes on the same theme as the windows themselves. The system tray can now be customized to show only the icons and modifications you want.

Other visible improvements have also been made to the Config interface. UAC messages can now be set without much effort. Hardware management has improved, and even though I haven't been able to play around with it yet, the Homegroup sharing features are also a significant improvement on Vista.

So, it's similar to the Leopard/Snow Leopard upgrade, except for the fact that the old version sucked.
