I actually really love Windows 7, I use it both at home and in the office and I have to admit I completely skipped out Windows Vista and went right from Windows XP to Windows 7. And before that even, I took a LONG time to move from Windows 2000 to Windows XP.
I guess in some aspects, I’m stuck in my ways. I have to say though I never regret upgrading my PC rig and upgrading to 64-Bit Windows 7 – especially with an SSD as my primary HDD (for Windows and my applications) it’s super fast.

Of course the best combination for productivity is using Windows 7 along with Office 2010.
I do use Office 2010 as well, I found the big changes a little confusing at first (the button layout at the top) – coming from an old version of Office – but once you get used to it, it’s actually a lot faster and a lot more powerful.
You don’t have to dig through a whole bunch of context menus to get to the feature you want, they are all in tabs and easily accessible.
