Microsoft releases Windows 7 Pre-Beta
Vista, we hardly knew ya… and we didn’t really want to.
On Tuesday morning, October 28th 2008, Microsoft gave attendees of its Professional Developers Conference a glimpse of Windows 7, the much-ballyhooed successor to Windows Vista, and said it plans to release the Windows 7 beta early next year.
The question on everyones mind… is this Windows 7 or simply Vista 2.0.
Some of the things that are gone:
No more sidebars. Gadgets are added to the desktop, freeing up screen real estate
No more UAC (User Access Control), Microsoft gives control back to the user where it belongs.
To see some of the features that are being added, click the link below. Remember this is the Pre-beta release so what you see may not be what you get. Microsoft can and does change things as they go.
