The return of the start menu along with streamlined windows.

G2 User in Computer Software

Windows 7 revamped the entire user interface to become more simple and efficient. From an administer's point of view as well as a user's, this is the best OS from Microsoft since XP and for both home and business it is great.

I don't have any serious complaints. Windows is what it is without the lousy ideas that cluttered Vista.
