Windows 7 beta

So, I'll start this easy. I nabbed my copy of Windows 7 beta and managed to get it installed on my Acer Aspire One A150 (ie, the HDD-based series). First impressions lead me to think that this runs like XP already does (fairly well) even though it's got the Vista base. Over all I feel the same about it that some other people have posted: it's what Vista should have been. Rough edges cleaned up, awkward security model loosened up, and much faster. The one real feature I like? The stock icons in the taskbar are mono. They're easy to see and identify, just like the ones in the menu bar on, uh, OS X. Yeah, except MS made these white with a black outline, and they're on the bottom of the screen so you see, they're not the same...
