Decided to check this thread after seeing it for a while now. 
I installed Windows 7 this past week as I read , "it's simplicity and elegance challenges that of the Mac". High praise indeed..I guess. ;)
Only difference I've noticed at this point is that I have to reduce the pixel size of a image in order to post it as wallpaper on my monitor. If not it is way too large. Wasn't necessary with Vista. 
A benign tiny bother.
