I'm currently working on an editorial with some of my favorite Windows 7 features, and need the communities input as well. What are you favorite feature(s) in Windows 7?

My favourite feature has to be HomeGroup. It makes sharing printers, files, pictures, and documents easy. That, and Aero Peek which comes in very handy when you want to cut through desktop clutter.

I would have to say the aero snapping. Makes window management a whole lot easier.

Superbar and Aero Peek (Alt-Tab iteration being the most useful, much more so than Flip3D *which is ugly as sin*)

I never played with VISTA, I was always a XP fanboi, so coming to 7 has been a interesting experience (to say the least) but having said that, I love the 'gadgets' feature... it's old (from Vista) but it's still cool for me ;)

I also dig the "Sticky Notes" ;)

Aerosnap, so much easier to browse the internet, take notes, compare and have Word open next to it to do assignments.
