Favorite Windows 7 feature?


29 posts in this topic

Posted

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.

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!

Definitely Aero Snap and Aero Peek. Also, ability to pin items on task bar. :)

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.

The jumplist in the start memu: Its really convenient for a mouser such as myself for stuff not pinned to the task bar.

Aero-snap is definitely the feature I love the most from Windows 7, along with the Superbar, which is awesome too. It's a shame that XFCE in Linux can't seem to get their equivalent to Aero-snap to work the same way.

While a case could be made for my signature being 'trollbait' (even though that was not my intention), no such thing can be said of this thread. It's a valid question, which deserves valid answers.
With that said, the thread has already garnered a nice amount of [i]actual[/i] replies, that are unlike the one I'm quoting, which didn't even answer the question.

Aero Glass. Removed shadows and stripes with AeroTuner and using AeroSquared theme. It screams "POWEEERRR!" in Jeremy Clarkson's voice.

What I liked most about Windows 7 is it gave me a job.. If Microsoft didn't release it, Microsoft wouldn't have employed me to train OEM and Retail partners about the technology inside it..

I didn't reply to the thread in a meaningful way because the thread is clearly troll bait. Even if the question could be considered legitimate, it isn't when held alongside your signature.

Aside from that, there's a half dozen copies of this thread that could easily be found with search that aren't framed in such a way as to cause an argument.
