Windows 7 Features and Improvements

Windows 7 is set to feature improvements to the following areas: 

  • Migration & Deployment
  • Security Optimization
  • Desktop Management
  • Enterprise Search
  • Desktop Virtualisation
  • Application Virtualisation
  • HelpDesk Optimization
  • Corporate Compliance
  • Branch Office Optimization
  • Remote Access to Corporate Applications
  • Mobility Solutions
  • Green Computing

Some of these are already big topics of interest such as Desktop Virtualization, Mobility, Green IT etc and I think significant improvements to these areas (or in fact any of the above) could well lead to great adoption of Windows 7.


A couple of suggestions I made were to include some of the Enterprise CAL functionality from certain products in the WIndows 7 Enterprise SKU. So potentially having Windows 7 Enterprise would give you the Enterprice CAL functionality for OCS for example..


I also think that rolling VECD (Centralized Desktops) into either MDOP (Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack) or Windows 7 Enterprise. Let’s see if that happens in the final version 😉
