Windows 7 BETA: Great updates to the start menu and taskbar

I love the start menu and task bar.

First, the start menu is snappy.  Browsing through and clicking items is mostly immediate, what a wonderful change from Vista.

The task bar is great, I love the new Desktop preview.  When you hover over an item it sets up previews for that group side-by-side, then you can hover over those windows and preview them (it creates placeholders for the other items and shows the live window).

The systray, or notification area, has great improvements as well.
