Windows 7 features announced next month

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

Although the release date for Windows 7 is not likely to be before early 2010, there is a lot of interest in what Microsoft are planning to offer, especially by those who loved XP, but when Vista arrived absolutely hated it for various reasons.

As a prelude to the possibilities that are coming, Microsoft will be unveiling some of the details of Windows 7.

There are two events where Windows 7 technical details will be released; these are the Professional Developers Conference (PDC) in October and the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) to be held in November.

One feature that we can be sure of being included is the multi touch, but whether this is going to be included across the board or just with certain programmes, we will have to wait until the announcements to see.

  1. Instead of bloating it with more ‘features’ why not focus on simplicity and speed, why is it that you should have to sit around for 5 minutes before Windoze loads up, then when you are finished having to shut it down and wait around to check it does actually do it instead of coming up with a box say xxxx.exe is still running, do you want to stop it etc etc.
    the new version will probably load up quickly on a brand new PC, but after you have it for more than a few moths it will be dog slow

  2. So you consider an announcement about a forthcoming announcement to be news?

    Good in-depth reporting there, keep it up.

  3. Yes, it is good reporting, Pete. Because Microsoft basically owns the PC market, any major changes by Microsoft which will fundamentally impact this market is news!

  4. I think that the speed idea is the best because windows vista takes a long time to boot up unlike windows xp.

    More features are good too. LIke a number of 300, 350 or more is great. Like that, it would sound like a smart pc.

    Also, i think that microsoft should start to build their own pc. For example, a pc with the windows sign on it.
