But this is the last you'll hear of me about Win7, I received OpenSUSE today in the mail, and installed it (I used my file server for both installs, and need the files back).
Yeah, that is annoying - that you can't see the files how they are on the computer that you are browsing.

You can open any folder that you want (physical folder compared to the library). Libraries are just a convenient way of organizing your files.

If you drag the folder to the left pane onto favourites you can create a link to it (just like in vista).

I wonder where have all the folder gone when you click your user name in the menu?

Downloads aren't there and a few others... it's also cluttered with some Messenger files and other stuff that I have no what it is and it would be better off being stored elsewhere as I never access those folder. :/

Same goes for Vista...

Need to get rid of the those redundant folders.

Only issue for me is that win 7 rates my hard drive at 3 while vista rates it 5.7.

Does Comodo and AVG 8 work with Windows 7?

Also does SLI work fine?

This is one of the small changes I've noticed that resembles Mac OSX:

SLI works but I think the driver is a few versionds old or something because there is no multi-monitor support with SLI.

A gimmick at best I'd say.

I would like it that made a bit clearer (better color scheme and stuff) and intuitive later on in W7, as now it seems to have a few "redundant" folders.

EDIT: or maybe not... maybe I just need to get used to it. but what's up with having favorites and downloads in the favorites? Dlds migth be better off in the "Libraries" folder for me from the very beginning.

Can anyone confirm? This is an important feature for me.
