I've been using 7 since Beta and loving it. The taskbar and everything else has been wonderful. However, as with all Microsoft products, they always seem to leave out that feature that makes you wonder exactly WTF they were thinking. For example, try to print a specific range of pages from a long email in Outlook 2007. Printing page ranges is not supported in Outlook 2007. Anyways, that was one that was brought to my attention the other day.

Today, the problem is that I cannot seem to figure out how to pin a Windows VPN connection shortcut to the taskbar. RDP profiles pin just fine, but the shortcut for a Windows VPN connection cannot seem to be pinned. Please prove me wrong because I'd really love to be able to do this. I know you can turn the quick launch on, but I'd rather not do that.

I haven't found a way either, both are silly in my estimation as well. The latter really seems to come down with how Win7 won't allow 'any' shorcut to be pinned to the bar which manifests itself in many annoying ways.
