    That's cool... and I actually see some use for it. There'll be times when your mouse is near some folder and to clear clutter, you just grab and shake.

    While I don't think that the comparisons for Vista to ME are proper, I do think that this is a big step forward so far.
    Like I said, I see it as the evolutionary progression just as there was from 95 to 98.

    Vista had a REAL rocky start. If it hadn't, I could easily see Win7 being released as a service pack for Vista. I'm positive MS wanted distance from that name. From what I'm seeing, this is a winner all around. I'll let you Betazoids do your thing, but when it has a final release, I'm all over it.

    Here's another cool feature, again not sure if it's Vista or W7, but it's called Ready Boost. It's used to speed up your system with USB sticks, or more realistically, SD cards. This would be another feature that is netbook(me), or notebook user specific, especially because the aspire one originally comes with an expansion slot that would mend a SD card with the on board SSD. I'm not sure if Ready Boost actually makes it a single partition, I didn't test it, b/c the only SD I have is for my camera, but I will definitely consider a HCSD card for the future, on top of some additional ram.

    Shotty h4x FTW!!!

    Ready Boost was on Vista, too... but all the testing I saw didn't really decrease boot times. Maybe they got it to work here... afterall, original times to transfer data from a jump drive or from another PC was ridiculously long before SP1.

    JavaScript performance is better in IE8, but no where near Chrome's

    There's been a lot of sites (including one database I use for work) that really doesn't like Chrome. How's Firefox with Win7?
