Minor Improvementsin in windows 7 and No Game Changer

The aboriginal beforehand reviews of Microsoft (MSFT) Windows 7 Beta are starting to circulate, and here's what we apperceive so far: It looks and feels a lot like Vista, but adds a scattering of accessory achievement and UI improvements.

From Adrian Kingsley-Hughes at ZDnet:

* Software and accouterments that formed beneath Windows Vista will still plan beneath Windows 7, badly important in auspicious upgrades. Windows 7 install times are beneath bisected an hour, acceptable for Microsoft.

* Some user-interface changes are in the works, a lot of of them good. New are "Aero Snap," which lets users abbreviate Windows by boring them to the top of the screen, "Aero Peek" which briefly hides accessible windows and shows the desktop (which sounds a lot like a affection already in Mac OS X), and a new taskbar Adrian describes as "kludgey and counter-intuitive."

* Web browser Internet Explorer 8 and Windows Media Player both get improvements, but both still lag abaft third-party alternatives already available.

The summary: "I like Windows 7, a lot. Microsoft seems to accept put a lot of accomplishment into developing a amount operating arrangement that is chargeless from the absurd basic of the brand of XP and Vista. The OS is solid and fast."

So alarm it a abject hit: Windows 7 will apparently do able-bodied at aboriginal -- there's pent-up appeal from Windows users who accept been alienated Vista, and the new OS seems to accept abundant aces improvements. But in the continued run, it sounds like Windows 7 is to Vista what Windows 98 was to Windows 95: Better, but not a game-changer.

And in the continued run, Microsoft needs a game-changer. Slowly but steadily, the aggregation has been accident bazaar allotment and fizz to Apple (AAPL). And while we'll apparently advancement to 7 from Vista in a heartbeat, there's annihilation yet advancing out of Microsoft that changes that problem.
