Onsite Reviews New Features of Windows 7 RC

May 17, 2009

In the lab at Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans it is easy for anyone to identify our Microsoft project du jour – Windows 7The Release Candidate is available to anyone as a download for the second to last edition that many allege is faster, requires less resources,  and is more compatible with older applications than Windows Vista.

As Onsite engineers explore the new operating system they discovered several additional noteworthy features. Some of their new Windows 7 RC discoveries are listed below:

We discussed Aero Peak and the efficiency it adds to your computing experience in a prior post.  A ubiquitous complaint of Windows users has been that the contents of the Windows desktop are soon hidden either by a lone maximized application or a large number of open windows.  As we discussed in previous posts, Aero Peek is Windows 7’s answer to this dilemma.

In our lab, Onsite engineers installed Windows 7 from scratch. Onsite recommends clean installs to eliminate ‘baggage’ that may migrate from a prior installation. Unlike most versions of Windows, Windows 7 has the ability to recognize and locate drivers for most all of the components in our test PC. Windows 7 may not be thte holy grail of ‘plug and play;’ however Windows 7 did a great job of locating and installing the hardware driver components, all of which have drivers written for Vista.   Things like graphics cards, printers, scanners, chipsets, sound cards, and wireless cards of many current models were automatically recognized during Onsite’s installation process.

Apparently, Windows 7 plans to eliminate the need for a range of programs that are historically purchased separately.  At no extra charge, Windows 7 includes a new anti-virus, anti-malware application that provides an antivirus engine to protect your PCs against ‘evil-doers,’ spyware, viruses, and Trojans.

Stay tuned as Onsite continues our discovery and reports of the features and benefits in Windows 7 RC.  If you have any questions regarding anything Windows 7, kindly email us.
