Only the superbar.
Recent builds didnt impress requirement wise, they still need new hardware, so 4-5 or even low end 3 year old PCs won't run it too well.

Hate to break it to you.. but we're a customization forum and we kinda revolve around beauty at the desktop.

I like the superbar.

Sad truth: Seven only appears to run good on old hardware, after sometime it gets heavier and heavier.

So you mean it doesn't work good in a high performance PC? :blink:

OMG, then I should probably downgrade! :whistle:

Truth is any system will become heavy after a period of usage, if you don't maintain it.

Definitely the taskbar and windows snapping for me anyway :yes:

Wish there was a registry hack or something to get the window snapping in xp but i guess thats impossible haha :( Just don't like running uneccesary apps in the background just for one function.

Oh well 7 in a few months :)

Well, it's not the fault of the software.

It's because of hardware.

I've been hearing stories about how windows7 is only slightly faster than vista, but heck...vista uses 600MB of RAM idle...

windows7 fixes that very well, so i'd say lower system requirements.
