Windows 7 Developer Guide (Windows)

April 25th, 2009 Comments off

 

Building applications that are easy to use, visually appealing, and offer high performance is a challenge that developers face every day. Innovative applications can greatly improve the user experience, empowering companies to differentiate their services and solutions. However, developers are increasingly asked to do more in less time, while also optimizing the power and performance requirements of their applications.

The Windows 7 platform makes it easy for developers to create engaging, user-friendly applications by providing familiar tools and rich development features that allow them to take advantage of the latest PC capabilities.

This will be interesting to see what the impact of this will be on other software components that rely on the presence of IE…

After discovery by a blogger, Microsoft has announced that on their next operating system, Windows 7, users will have the ability to remove Internet Explorer and other select Microsoft programs. Microsoft has been accused of forcing users to run their own software while competitor products get pushed out of the market because of this.

Date Set For Windows 7 Release Candidate

April 24th, 2009 Comments off

I don’t know where I got the idea that the release of Windows 7 was a ways away from happening. I guess it was this Wikipedia article on Windows 7 that said in 2007 that MS said 3 years, but this article makes it seem sooner (I say not soon enough)…

Microsoft said on Friday that it will distribute the near-final “release candidate” version of Windows 7 beginning next week.
