Are you with Windows 7?
After 4 month of using Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate, I think there is much more improvement compared with Windows Vista Ultimate. Only a few minor bugs I found on Start Menu and visual effect thing. Well, as I read a news from ComputerWorld, Windows 7 could be lunch this August but still no specific date. Hope it much better after the first release.
Windows 7 taskbar have totally different compare with other Windows version. When many Windows opened, taskbar will appear only an icon with a great stable thumbnail preview. Also, when user try to open many Windows Explorer, all the Windows will be grouped into one icon on the taskbar until user over their mouse cursor on it to choose which Window they want to use.
Well, here it is a few minor uncomfortable thing/bugs I found my self on Windows 7 Ultimate Beta Build 7000:
1. Start menu scroll bar some time cannot be scroll or dragged by mouse.
2. In some cases, the wallpaper disappear and leave only plain color.
3. When I lock the Windows and the logged in back, the screen resolution reset to the recommended setting (another rarely situation).
4. Some old application (mine was Macromedia Fireworks 8) still can't totally support Aero/transparent window effect.
