Windows 7 Annoyances

I like this book. A modern operating system is bound to be immensely complex and whatever you may think of Microsoft, I think its developers have done a very good job. Compared to Vista it goes like a rocket, but there are unbelievable, inexplicable changes. Windows 7 Annoyances goes straight to the heart of the most annoying problems you find on a day-to-day basis, and sorts many of them out.
