The verdict is in: Windows 7 is a job well done. Yes, there will be a few Windows XP diehards and those who've fled to OS X and have no intention of returning, but overall Windows 7 is more responsive, prettier, and more usable than Windows Vista.

That said, it is not perfect, and Windows 7 comes with its own set of annoyances and missed opportunities. Here are three of the biggest.

I definitely agree with the taskbar/notification area, it's the only thing I don't like about Windows 7. Especially the 'new' behaviour for Windows Live Messenger. *

Multitouch is something I've never tried, still early days as far as I'm concerned. (Although their points seem valid)

* yes, I realise you can change this by setting compatibility mode to Vista. but I still don't like it... ;)
