    Another thing that I just noticed was that on the new "Awesome Bar" (as everybody is calling it =]) is that clicking on the pinned icons on the bar and dragging up reveals the menu that is hidden beside the icons. Think similar to the T-Mobile G1's top menu being a drawer to pull down.

    I can't wait for all the people saying "I hate Windows 7, I'm staying with my very stable Vista SP2/3". LMAO

    Has anyone had problems with 7 coming out of sleep and locking up? Mine has had this problem everytime I come out of sleep. it will be okay until I try to click on something and then I just get a spinning ring... But the clock's second hand keeps moving and my cursor moves...

    EDIT:

    It seems to be an app I installed. I system restored back to the original installation and it turns out sleep is okay now. I'll post the broken app once I figure it out...

    It turns out that the problem program is Virtual Clone Drive. Daemon Tools doesn't work either...

    Any thoughts on a virtual CD-ROM drive app?

    It's not surprising that third party virtual drivers like VCD and Daemon (and hardware-specific tablet / rotation button drivers) don't work in Windows 7 BETA.

    Patience grasshoppers.

    It is actually q pre-beta and you can only get it if you know someone, went to PDC or are willing to pirate it off bittorrent or usenet.

    autorotation is more a function of the video driver than anything.
