It’s so new and shiny!
Welcome to a fresh and hip look for Windows 7 – it’s popularly anticipated as the best OS that Microsoft has created thus far. Comparable in look and feel to Mac OS X Leopard, the user experience with Windows 7 will be akin to play-time with a new toy.
A lot of people are talking, writing, blogging and even making videos of the new features available in 7. After checking out Wired magazine’s in depth “First Look” on this new OS – we were inspired to give a shout-out to the features that we’re most excited to play with. Join us in the fun waiting for it’s official public release on October 22, ’09.
These clever new Windows management tools will make the user experience very pleasant:
Aero Peek: An outline display provides a thumbnail preview of all your open windows behind your active window. Very convenient since you don’t have to remember what content is kept in the minimized window tabs anymore.
Aero Snap: So useful for those who like having split screens to multi-task. You can use this Snap feature to drag and snap your working window into place on either sides of your screen.
Aero Shake: Such a fun and unique idea! When you click on a window and shake it (yes, shake it) – all the windows behind it will minimize. No more going through and having to minimize each one separately. Minimizing windows is also made more exciting since they turn into small squares on your task bar, each with representative shiny little icons.
