A very simple, but interesting feature is called Aero Snap. In my daily work, I often have to compare or to analyze information from two different windows.

Another very nice feature is the history in the new taskbar. Every icon in the new taskbar opens its history with a right click on it. With this feature, you have a fast access to all recently opened files for a specific application.
