Windows 7 First Impressions
The start menu defaults to a kind of history of apps you have executed. Any app icon can be pinned to the menu permanently. The All Programs option is now sort of a click thru instead of pop ups. When you select an option from the menu, it pops up in place instead of growing to the right. A big improvement in usability if you ask me.
The taskbar just shows the icon for an application, much like the doc for OS X. There will allow you to put a lot more apps on there. Also a big improvement.
So far so good. I think I can definitely upgrade my XP systems with this OS.
