Default Why is the taskbar a complaint (W7)?

It seems like everyone and their mother, along with all these "review" sites complain about

1. Not being able to differentiate between closed and open windows

2. All open windows of the same app are combined into one on the taskbar

This can be disabled, so it is very similar to previous versions. I can understand people complaining in a forum, when they probably just started messing around with the OS, but when people are putting out lengthy "previews" and they can't figure out how to right click on the taskbar to find the properties kinda makes me

Ok, /endrant

Well because it's default usage and most people dont change it, defaults are there for a reason, the fact you can change it is not the point.

Just unpin everything and setup a quick launch. Then it looks just like Vista.

After using W7 for a few days now, I can say that I LOVE the new taskbar. It is such a HUGE upgrade and provides so much more functionality. I couldn't go back to the old one. Hopefully They release W7 within a short time after the Beta is done. I don't want to have to go back to Vista for too long.
