The new Steam Beta Client adds Windows 7 Jumplist with your recently played games and status/tasks. Also Taskbar progress bar for your downloads. You have to join the optional beta program for the Steam Client to download it (available in File-Settings).

That's pretty cool - although it's a little odd how you can pin your online status...

@kombolcha What are you looking for?

Do you search only for a win7-compatible burning-software? For example:

BurnAware Free

cdrtfe - open source CD/DVD burning program

InfraRecorder

StarBurn FREE

UsefulUtils Discs Studio

Or do you set a value on specific Windows 7 features?

Astroburn Lite 1.1.0 (wich i have already reported 25 days before)

Maybe a bug, seems like a useless feature.

Dunno about winfox, but you can try using Firefox 3.7 nightlies as they have said functionality built in. Though bit bugy.

Taskbar Meters Incredibly simple meters that live in the Windows 7 task bar.

Two applications are included: One that shows CPU utilization and another that shows memory.

Quick access to Task Manager and the Resource Monitor to determine what's slowing down your computer.

The update frequency and percentages that determine "yellow" and "red" states are configurable.

XQDC X-Setup Pro now supports Win7. It had a multitude of tweaks available for previous versions, so I assume the same is true for Win7.

In an internally-released build there was also tabs support in taskbar but it was removed in the public release until it's fully tested.

Library Icon Changer Tool for easy change of the Windows 7 Library Icons :).

Interesting especially for new Librarys wich have always the same Icon per default.

Download the Library Icon Changer from here without force-registration.

Not sure if it's been mentioned before, but PowerISO is integrated with Win 7, at least in the start menu.
