Windows 7 Makes Pre-Release Debut
At this week's PDC, Microsoft showed
off Windows 7
and handed out pre-release code to thousands of curious developers.
We'll learn a lot more as testers put the code through its paces. For now,
we know a few things -- namely, that Microsoft has improved the taskbar and
enhanced its touchscreen abilities. Microsoft is also trying to make it easier
to network machines in the home.
So far, I haven't seen any show-stopping new features. Then again, that's the
last thing it needs; what Window 7 really needs is stability and compatibility.
And a dash of performance wouldn't hurt, either!
