"This blog post talks about a few of the improvements that will be in our Release Candidate (RC) based upon customer feedback. There are many under the hood changes (bug fixes, compatibility fixes, performance improvements, and improvements) across the entire dev team that we just don’t have room to discuss here, but we thought you’d enjoy a taste of some changes made by three of our feature teams: Core User Experience, Find & Organize and Devices & Media. The comments in this article come from a variety of verbatim sources, with identifying information withheld. "
Microsoft has been kind enough to provide a list of some of the changes they've made to Windows 7 since the release of their Beta. A large part of the changes are driven by user feedback with a particular focus on improving the interface and accessing different parts of Windows 7. None of the changes are radical but combine together to make using Windows 7 easier and more consistent. I particularly like the adjustments made to the Windows + # shortcut and the addition of Aero Peek to Alt-Tab. Being a keyboard junkie, its changes like this which will help make using Windows 7 a pleasure since it extends all those Windows conventions that I've been using for over a decade now. Anyone see any changes that peak their interest?
