I hate that it keeps popping over to the start screen when the cursor accidentally moves too far to the right.
I've had great luck with windows 7, it's been very stable. I have it running on my server, home theater PC and two laptops.
With that said, this laptop previously had Vista and I had really no issues with it, and didn't understand what all of the hubub was all about. I know that it was a bit of a resource hog, but for its time this laptop was more than powerful enough to handle it. Now it's a bit long in the tooth and runs 7, actually smoother than Vista, so I'm thinking that 7 is a bit more efficient than Vista.
