Alt+tab doesn't work for you?

Alt + tab + mouse-wheel scroll == win.

2 hands plus scrolling plus decript picture = hassle
1 hand slide and click on name = ease

No backward compatibility with the new homegroup? Really? Was it that hard to make it work with Vista or patch Vista to work with it? This is something that could still come however.

I also agree the default tab behavior seems stupid and its annoying that I have to change it to actually see whats there without relying on thumbnail peeks.

Lastly thanks for by default adding another click to get to my home folder. But library sounds cooler!
You can change the taskbar to be almost identical to XP and Vista.

Also, I still don't understand what you guys are talking about with the tab behavior???

the stacked windows dont let you know what you have open without hovering over them. These things might be handy on a tiny computer like a netbook but a lot of people have big widescreen monitors these days and have plenty of taskbar real estate.

Just right click on the taskbar and select never combine for the taskbar buttons. Viola! Problem solved for the stacked windows.

those whines on that site are not really any reason to hate w7.

Snow Leopard Is Almost Here
Apple’s next-generation Snow Leopard is arriving September — a month before Windows 7. Apple is promising its OS will deliver on many of the improvements Microsoft highlights in Windows 7 — 64-bit addressing, improved efficiency with task management on multiple processors, and others. It’s undetermined which OS is better, but from my own perspective as a long-time Mac user, I will say I already prefer the current Mac OS X Leopard to Windows 7. If you’re looking (or willing) to switch to a radically different OS, then OS X Snow Leopard is an option to consider before committing to Windows 7

and lol..he is a mac user of course he is gonna bag w7 big time. to mac users windows / ms is the devil that must be destroyed.

Yep, that is a stupid complaint. I use "Combine when full" so its the best of both worlds

the guy said at the end he prefers mac os x. That's fine in itself, it's his opinion after all. But that opinion makes the article completely worthless to me because I think Mac OS is complete rubbish.

Bring the friggin' quicklaunch back, officially. The method used now makes it disappear every couple of restarts. How hard is that?

Just add a new toolbar with the icons you want on it then hide the name.

This is the current world of online IT journalism. There are SO many sites and blogs and 'digg'ing it's very hard to standout. So you make up and post stuff just to get noticed.

I mean have you seen the outrageous stuff MikeC posts on the front page? ::

That's what I did. But it disappears after 3-4 restarts. Unless you are referring to making my own toolbar with my own folder etc...
