Windows 7 Available For Download

9 August 2009 No Comment

Windows 7 is available for download to MSDN and Tech net subscribers, but for general cusomers will be available only in 22 October. The new version of windows is coming with a lot of new features like:

Improved taskbar previews
Bigger icons 🙂
Pinning
Speedy access to your favorite pictures, songs, websites, and documents.

or better read here all the improvements: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/features

Also it seem the Beta 1 of .NET is doesn’t survive to an update so is better to have Beta 2.

And the latest news:

It seems the chkdsk utility from the latest version of windows 7 is leaking memory.

When scanning a second hard disk (a non-boot partition or second physical drive) using the “/r” (read and verify all file data) parameter the utility starts to leak memory like its a monsoon and quickly runs up a high enough memory debt that it blue screens and crashes the system, according to some (others merely report a memory usage of around 98 percent within seconds, but without the legendary “blue screen of death”).

Anyway as usual Microsoft say is not their fault and is probably a chipset problem. 🙂
