Excited about Windows 7

I’ve been rather excited about the release of Windows 7 RC (release candidate). I have been running the beta for some time now and have found that I appreciate several of the features in this new release of my operating system.

  • View windows side-by-side by dragging them
  • Maximize windows by dragging them to the top of the screen
  • Enhanced search (at Start button)
  • Quicker boot, fast resume from standby
  • Opening files faster with just two clicks and no desktop clutter (using jump lists)
  • Watching video across a remote desktop session

A feature I wish was available in all versions of Windows: Problem Steps Recorder.

If you want to see some of these in action, Microsoft has released a Windows 7snack.
