In Windows 7 we are expanding the number of features you have control over in this regard, giving customers more control, flexibility and choice in managing the features available in this version of Windows. In addition to the features that were already available to turn on or off in Windows Vista, we’ve added the following features to the list in Windows 7:

Windows Media Player
Windows Media Center
Windows DVD Maker
Internet Explorer 8
Windows Search
Handwriting Recognition (through the Tablet PC Components option)
Windows Gadget Platform
Fax and Scan
XPS Viewer and Services (including the Virtual Print Driver)


No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Internet Explorer 8 was a choice on that list...because of Firefox. :huh: Too much competition.

There has been a “MS / Windows” section on here from the very start, though I often find myself not writing about Windows unless my Mac (Inspiron) is on the fritz. Microsoft is going to need a miracle if Windows 7 is to bring the shaky Vista crowd away from taking out a 2nd mortgage and buying an iMac.

Even with the economy as bad as it is, you’re not going to spend money on something that doesn’t work as expected and while Vista runs great for some people, you need a lot higher end computer. Sure you can disable a ton of services and “clean” it up, but the average computer user who is about to buy Vista doesn’t know about that stuff.

Oh yes, I agree. Vista needs some good hardware. I upgraded to 4 GB RAM recently, from the 2.5 GB already installed -- now I have got a little better performance. I finally gave up and added Kubuntu to secondary boot, because I needed some fresh air. :huh:
