Windows 7: A Platform With a Platform

I think it is now safe to say that Microsoft finally gets it and is willing to let us know... that we know... that they know... that Vista is a dud.

Microsoft is pushing its next generation of Windows hard. Windows 7 isn't due out until some time next year. But here are the promises as delivered by senior executives at Microsoft's Window Hardware Engineering Conference:

- Windows 7 will boot up and power down faster, using less power and memory in the process.

- Windows 7 will be able to recognize devices simlutaneousl, allowing them to be recognized faster.

- Windows 7 will use up to 11% less in battery life than Vista.

Change really is in the air. Let's see if Microsoft delivers.
