Federated searches. Less whining about trivial things that can be changed.

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

Dude - 2009 just called and wants its thread back.
My favourite feature is that it is upgradeable to Windows 8.


My favourite feature is that it is not windows 8

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.

Write troll bait threads, attract trolls..


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 actual 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.

Then I'll remove the content in my signature. While you don't have to explain here (if at all), I do wonder how the OP could be construed in such a way that it would cause an argument?

Kind Sir, internets is all about the uselessly useless, repetitive misuse of flawed opinions in a bigoted and intolerant ways by misinformed and ignorant. Why do you dislike the fun of that? :/
