Windows 7 Awesomeness or not

Firstly, I love Windows 7 (which isn’t exactly a secret). I think it’s an amazing upgrade over Vista and every Windows user should be running it as soon as possible. Unfortunately with all software Windows 7 has bugs, yes even the final version.

There have been numerous little issues over the previous builds of Windows 7 which is to be expected with final products but at least on my machine one of these little issues remains. When using a Jumplist for the Remote Desktop Client (either a pinned connection or a recent connection) the remote desktop connection never starts.

While not a big issue, it’s very very simple to work around but opening a new Remote Desktop Connection instance and choosing the recent connection from the drop down list; it is a little annoying this program hasn’t been tested properly so it ‘lights up’ on Windows 7.
