Just wandering what bugs people are running into.

Here's mine.

1) Erratic behavior from icons on the superbar when I drag / reposition them

2) Anything which involves the hard drive (even browsing explorer) results in slow performance a lot of hard disk thrashing

...I'm sure there are more that I can't remember right now.

In the fifth day of use now. I have not encountered anything that I could call a "bug" so far. If it was available as a registered OS, I would have it in preference to XP or Vista.
I have no problems with the Icons in the taskbar. Whenever I install, one of my first customisation items is to disable the Windows search service , as I have little need for it, and the Superfetch service. Either of these could be causing your hard disk problems.

Always disable the Windows Search service or leave you're computer on for 24 hours and let it index all of you're pc.

Otherwise the Hard Disk is always busy and the performance is slow.
I personally don't have any use for it, but some others have (but not much).

The problem is still there with search turned on or off, it's also well documented elsewhere.

On the x64 version, Google Chrome always crashes, It also displays a message saying it isn't compatible when I try to install.

Get the chrome nightly versions
http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-xp/11223/
(latest build as of this post)

If it still does not install use the zipped version no install needed.

personally I have had no problems with it

On my computer the HomeGoup Listener service kept crashing when Aero was enabled (got that one fixed somehow) and hard disk performance dropped to a WEI of 2.0. Otherwise everything is working fine now. I did an upgrade, btw.

Another upgrade install from 7022 here, working brilliantly for more than a day straight.

In fact something even improved specifically for me since 7022. Hybrid SLI (basically tech that lets you *entirely* power off/on a card like a 9800GT - fan included - whenever you like if you have a compatible onboard GPU) used to demand that I closed msnmsgr, VPC and a few other things whenever I wanted to switch between "Save Power" (i.e. 9800GT off)and "Performance" (9800GT powering the system) modes. It did so in 7000 and 7022.

Now it doesn't seem to care what is running and I can switch between modes whenever I like. Great improvement for me.

Hi everyone!

It's been a long time since I tried OS betas... LH in fact ^^
Seven 7048 is the first build I try and it looks great. Smoother than Vista/Server2k8 on my computer (Centrino 1.6Ghz/1024 Mb RAM/ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 128Mb).

Everything is "by default", I didn't change anything since this morning.

I had to download my wifi's drivers from Intel (Intel PRO 2000bg). As the drivers are included in Vista my card doesn't appear to be in the Vista driver files. I had to install the WinXP ones.

Which gets me to another problem... Blue Screen... After installing ESET Smart Security 4.0.314.
I know BSOD aren't very accurate but it told me it was because of "tcpip.sys". I guess it was cause because of the firewall and the XP drivers.

After a restoration, it worked fine, and I downloaded NOD32 instead of Smart Security (without the firewall).
As I'm installing Visual Studio 2008 right now, I'll try NOD32 latter (during my C# lessons :P).

Oh yes... What i installed yet:
    Synaptics Drivers 10.1.8 Vista 32
    WinRAR 3.80
    RMClock (old version, didn't try the new one)
    CloneCD 5.3.1.3
    Firefox 3.2.a1pre
    TeraCopy 2.0 beta 4a
    LimeWire 5.0.11
    Azureus
    SQL Server Management Studio Express 2005

Windows 7 has problems with some anti-virus products.

They cause BSOD's, all programs creates those ones, and kaspersky get's another.

It only occurs when you open network shares and the anti-virus scans the network folder.
Even after you have successfully downloaded an network-shared file and closed the connection you can even after a few days still get an BSOD.

Well it is a good thing new builds are leaked so often so we do not need virus protection Does not matter for me anyways.

Just a question... Is there a caching feature in Seven or something like that??
Visual Studio starts so quickly... It's the first time I see it like that! Really!

About the antivirus, yes, I know that.. I had the same problem with LH/AVG.
Anyway, ESET Nod32 works fine, no more BSOD.

Sounds like it, but that was in Vista as well.

this also happens under Vista ;)

The cause is Superfetch, which cashes your most used applications and files :D

In the Control Panel there is a icon for the Taskbar. But the icon shows the Vista Taskbar not the newser 7-Superbar.
It's a little bug^^

Hasn't superfetch been tweaked for 7 to speed it up further?

Shared folder icon guys dont show up for me anymore when i share a folder or drive in 7048 x86

Folder security settings are left over from previous format (old shared folder's with a padlock icon), I have to go into them manually and delete the old security entries with question marks on them and reboot

On my old P4, after I eject a disk it tells me that my internal parallel ATA DVD drive can now be safely removed. :P

Left over security settings (folders with a padlock) left over from previous format

Also not being able to delete some folders, solution is to go into (sub)folder and delete the containing files, then exit the folder and you will be able to delete it

And some files don't like it if I try to move them (I think the last two bugs may be cause by my A/V nod32)
