Also of note is an improvement for performance of SSDs on the upcoming Windows 7 OS; W7 will be able to recognize when an SSD is attached and will significantly change its storage system based on that usage model according to Microsoft.
With the bits of Windows 7’s pre-beta and milestone releases taking the torrent community by storm, there’s more excitement than ever surrounding the highlights of the UI and top level features of Microsoft’s upcoming OS, demonstrated and released at its Professional Developers Conference. Many are pleased to see Windows 7 to be running leaner than Windows Vista, despite featuring rich graphics.

Vowing not to repeat this problem, Microsoft is rethinking how it approaches hardware with its new OS.
