Great results. Here's a tip from Thom Hogan'a book on the D7000. Instead of plugging a cord into the USB port on the left, it is much faster and uses no battery power (a significant issue) if you just purchase a $20 SD Card reader from your local camera store.
Amazon.com and BH Photo have them, but then you'll have to wait for delivery.
I find myself the most common use I have for Jpegs is as attached files to emails. So, in those cases SMALL/BASIC minimizes the file stuff. Like you, I set the SHOOTING MENU to save images in RAW and Jpeg. It will take you some time to understand the ins-and-outs of RAW and what advantages it offers.
Have fun. That's the important point. There are no DSLR police!
