    Here's what I think will be changed or added from the time frame between the Beta release and the final release.

    The Taskbar:
    . The Taskbar will be changed again to emulate a dock even moreso than the Beta release. Icons will zoom or highlight, similar Mac OS X Tiger.
    . The Windows Orb will be gone. The icon on the far-left will be the Explorer icon, and upon right-clicking, everything can be seen in the jump list, such as Documents, Libraries, Control Panel, etc.
    . With the previously-mentioned change in mind, a new type of folder/library will be called "Programs", which will work just like "All Programs" from XP/Vista.
    . There will be a search button located to the left of the Show Desktop button (Tall, vertical). It will be the same size, but will have the magnifying glass icon.
    . The Taskbar itself will be smaller, as the icons would be a bit smaller than the default size, but larger than the ones enabled in the "Show Small Icons" option.

    Random Visual Stuff:
    . The Bootup Animation will be a bit higher-res.
    . If there's only one user on the PC, the background in the log-in screen will be the one the user currently has.
    . DreamScene-styled wallpapers will be included.
    . There will be more screensavers.

    Tweaked/New Features:
    . Ctrl+Alt+Del will once again open up the task manager ONLY.
    . Windows+C will replace the old shortcut to open up the Shut Down/Restart/Log Off /Task Manager screen.
    . When a taskbar icon flashes (Like AIM/MSN for example), there will toggle-ble option to have be a small Thumbnail Preview of the new window that flashes for 2 seconds.
    . (Obvious) App/Device compatibility issues.
    . (Obvious) Random bugs/imperfections.

    My prediction: It will crash every 5 minutes and everyone will switch to ubuntu. UBUNTU FTW!

    Nobody thinks that you're some elite, superior PC user because you use the "underdog" of OS's. Besides, Windows 7 barely crashes for anyone.

    I'm dual booting and ubuntu doesn't seem superior in any way.

    Windows 7 itself barely crashes, or Applications in/for/on Windows 7 barely crashes?

    Based on the experiences of myself, others, and ones from various websites, both. Windows 7 never gets BSOD's unless intentionally screwed with. Also, the range of compatible apps for Windows 7 is larger than compatible apps for Vista, and they all work fine.

    Windows 7 sucked for me. It constantly froze, and I had to reinstall multiple times. Now it won't even install on my HDD :/
    I'm hoping the final version will be more stable.
