    Things I like

    • Snipping Tool.  Yeah, we could already do that with Ctrl-PrintScreen and Paint, but it's nice to have it all in one tool.  
    • 7 is a noticeably more responsive than Vista. 
    • desktop peek

    Annoying things:

    • No text next to taskbar buttons by default.  I really don't know the icons for a lot of apps I use.
    • moving a window to the top of the screen maximizes it.  It would be nice if I could hold down a key or something to override this as sometimes I just want to move the window to the top of the screen.

    I like the drag to maximize, but I like being able to drag an already maximized window to restore it even better. Its great when I want to peek behind the window to not have to double click then go find the title bar to drag. I can do it all and put it back in one motion.
