The whole pinning programs to the task bar is pretty much the Dock in Mac OSX, and some of the cool features are from Linux.
It's great from a business point of view. People use Macs for the aesthetic features such as the dock, and use Linux for things like customisation, security and stability. If they copy these kind of things, then their chances of enticing more people to use their operating system start to grow. Seeing as the Linux and Mac user-bases have been growing since the release of Windows Vista, it's a necessity for Microsoft to bring some of them back.
Personally, I'm really liking Windows 7. It took a long time to convert to Vista and I hated it right up until SP1 was released. Now I'm quite happy with it, but still have some issues with certain features. Windows 7 seems to be heading towards resolving these, so an upgrade will definitely be on the cards for me, but only on the desktop. For the mobile world, I'll be keeping my Linux installation right where it is
