The first thing I liked as a web developer ever since I booted up my new Windows 7 installation was the sticky note. I used to have lots of TODO lists on desktop and sometimes I used to forget about some of them.

Sticky notes for me are a productivity enhancer. I use them every day, and each day I add and delete new tasks. It helped me so far.

Another feature I like is the graphics. I write code all day and all night, so a little colour and a transparent, blurry window makes my life happier. I just rated my notebook’s performance while writing this article and I got a 3.1 as the lowest subscore. The other subscores go as high as 5 out of 7.9. The lower value is because of the integrated graphics adapter. But, hey, who’s got time to play when coding puts food on my table?

More recent documents. This is what I see when opening the Start menu. Each recent application has it’s own recent documents. Easier to find.

And, if you need more tweaks, get your copy of Tweak 7.
