...now that I've turned off all the new features... I might've used the captionless taskbar buttons, but the only way I can do that is to enable "Always Combine Multiple Windows", which I simply will not do. Oh, and the combination launcher buttons/window buttons? Do not want. Other than that, it's much less irritating and nitpicky than Vista is, which is an improvement. I'd like to see tabbed windows made standard across the OS, at least as an option; if I have ten Word documents open, do I really need ten window buttons on the Taskbar? No, I don't, but I also don't want to combine them into a single window button that forces me to use a right-click menu to switch between them. In fact, I don't want that more than I don't want ten window buttons. Tabs as an integral part of the Windows GUI would be nice, Microsoft. - - - Things I like: Captionless window buttons don't take up nearly as much space on the taskbar. Desktop wallpapers can finally be stretched to fill the entire screen without distorting their proportions. No UAC warnings! (yet) New-style categorized Control Panel is less of a pain in the ass than it is in Vista. Things I don't: Launcher buttons that also serve as window buttons are a nice space saver in theory, but a little faint highlighted box as a "window is already open" indicator is way too subtle. Then again, maybe my opinion on this doesn't matter, because I never use taskbar shortcuts anyway; I put my shortcuts on the desktop where they belong. Can't use captionless window buttons without also combining all similar windows -- which makes sense, but I'd rather have tabs than menus. Day-glo default colors hurt my eyes, but I can fix that easily enough. IE8 user interface sucks just as bad as IE7, mainly because it is just like IE7. Give me the option to put all the buttons in one place dammit! New-style categorized Control Panel is more of a pain in the ass than the old XP style. Can't switch to XP-style Start menu anymore. All I want is a list of programs, I don't care what I used recently. I don't always do the same five things! Alt-Tab doesn't show window previews like it does in Vista. Is this gone for good? Bring it back! Things I want to see: Something like OSX/KDE4's feature that temporarily zooms out and organizes all windows so I can pick the one I want, preferably as a replacement for Alt-Tab. Tabs available as part of the default windowframe, instead of right-click menus to select from multiple combined windows.
