Many compatibility problems with programs - a BIG problem for companies (although that got better as things went on), a big resource hog - flashy useless Aero visuals amongst others, annoying features (automatic backup that eats the HD space? Let us just use Norton Ghost and leave us our drive space ugh!) and for musicians not very friendly for those who use a computer as a DAW. And so on, and so on...
It's okay if you just use you computer for everyday stuff, but once you get specific you could/can run into some bothering stuff but again, that got a bit better as things went on.
Anyway, don't be mistaken; Windows 7 in not that new - the project has been on for quite some time now just as it won't be released until at least 2010. I only hope that they take things more seriously this time...
