Changes to Windows 7 in Release Candidate

This MS blog contains a great look at the numerous improvements that Microsoft have made to Windows 7, all based on beta testers feedback. Some of these changes include:

1. Windows Flip (ALT + TAB) with Aero Peek

8. Jump List length

21. Improved playback support for video content from digital camcorders and cameras

Steven Sinofsky says that they have fixes for nearly 2000 reported bugs/glitches in the pipeline. He also gives his definition of a bug which is “any time the software does something that someone one wasn’t expecting it to do” and “a cosmetic issue, a consistency issue, a crash, a hang, a failure to succeed, a confusing user experience, a compatibility issue, a missing feature, or any one of dozens of different ways that the software can behave in a way that isn’t expected”.

Steven’s whole post can be found here.

These are all improvements that help make it an even more enjoyable experience to use Windows 7-well done team!

Go and check out the list and see how what might well be MS’s best OS has got even better 🙂
