I am happy that Win 7 now has widgets and a decent photo editor <-- was a major bummer on XP , there many times I could have used those widgets and taking photos I would go home edit and tag them then email myself back at work
I use Windows every day at work. There's a new virus going around. A window pops up running a virus scan, but that's a virus. Clicking on the X to close the virus scan window freezes the PC, but even not clicking on the X doesn't do any good. The PC is still infected with the virus. Using Windows is a constant adventure!

I can get a copy of Windows 7 for free as a student through the MSDN Academic Alliance. Only problem is that it takes 20 GB of hard drive space for the 64-bit version! The 32-bit version needs 16 GB. Smells like bloatware a mile away.
Edit: AND if you want to use Windows XP mode, that requires an ADDITIONAL 15 GB of hard drive space! Compare this to Snow Leopard, which gave me BACK 7 GB of hard drive space and you can see why I refuse to install it, even for free. Windows 7 is just another nail in their coffin.
