taskbar at least would resolve.

Quite true. Crappiest Windows ever award goes to Windows Millenium IMHO. Vista overall with SP1 is actually pretty good now. XP is perhaps the overall best and Windows 2000 was the most stable. That OS never crashed.
it's hard to gauge the "best" windows when one was used for 6 years and the others were only around for 2-3 years at most.

you can unpin them all and create a quick launch bar. Mine looks just like Vistas now.

Windows Vista-Style Taskbar. I wasn’t initially a fan of the Windows 7 taskbar when it was first introduced in early Windows 7 builds, but as the design was refined in the run up to the beta, I was converted and now actively prefer the new look, particularly when I’ve got lots of windows open simultaneously. For those who really would prefer a look more reminiscent of Windows Vista, the good news is that it’s easy to customize the look of the taskbar to more closely mirror the old version:

The Windows 7 Taskbar can be configured for a Windows Vista compatibility view.
To achieve this look, right-click on the taskbar and choose the properties dialog. Select the “small icons” checkbox and under the “taskbar buttons” setting, choose “combine when taskbar is full”. It’s not pixel-perfect in accuracy, but it’s close from a functionality point of view.

I recently conducted the über scientific method of comparison...

I dropped both WindowsXP and Vista from my roof, whilst still in the box. The Vista CD came out. So, I've come to the conclusion that XP is both more stable and more secure. Vista needs to work on it's box some more. I strongly hope that Windows 7 will be quality where it counts -- the box.

Thank you for your time.

2000 may have been ugly compared to Vista but man... that was rock solid OS. Windows 7 does seem awfully darn good though, especially considering it's still Beta.
