I hope this is appropriate, but I wonder if any of you...Neowinners... have a favorite Windows 7 feature?

For me, it's hard to choose. The other two features that bear the Aero monkier (Snap and Shake) are each close seconds, but I think that my favorite feature is Aero Peek.

The feature conveys to me something humble yet powerful. I love the squeegee lines and its graceful transition as it fades to glass.

My favourite feature is that it is upgradeable to Windows 8.

Fair enough, but it's still a modern operating system.

What's the point in trolling the thread, it's still a valid question is it not?

Mine personally is Aero Snap, i must use that almost every day. A small but really useful feature!

Being able to rearrange windows on the task bar . It's still not quite there yet (you can only rearrange the groups, not what's in them) but it's better than how it was before.

Not being able to rearrange the folders in a group on the task bar sucks though :(

As does not being able to Right Click in the breadcrumb address bar (or whatever it's called) and choose to open the selected location in a new window.
