I can't argue with that. biggrin.gif

You'll have to install third party software for that. I use Classic Shell and 7 Taskbar Tweaker to get the style and features that I want from a start menu and the taskbar.

I'm also using the AllSnap 1.5 beta to make Windows snap together when they get 8px close, so that they line up nicely. Helps a lot when laying out a grid of windows to work on.

Takes a bit of effort to get that last one set up. You'll have to decide what sort of hotkeys to use to flip desktops, move windows between them, etc.; there's also a necessary tweak to get things like Steam windows to work properly. If you use Steam, let me know and I'll provide the details.


When everything is configured though, multitasking is very smooth. smile.gif At this point, I miss multiple desktops ("workspaces") on any computer that doesn't have them. I used to use them on WinXP as well, but they weren't perfectly stable. They work a lot better on Win7 and up.

Thanks for the tip on these Win7 modifiers. They will make my transition much less painful.
