    By anyweb,
    Microsoft has made energy efficiency a key design element of Windows 7, focusing on better power management for end users and centralised tools for IT pros, company executives said Friday.   Company engineers sought to make power management features more accessible than previous versions of Windows while at the same time, giving people the ability to customise settings.   The operating system, which will be released in October, by default is smarter about what to turn on when, according to c

    In a move to basically outflank the EU antitrust investigation, Microsoft has announced that all version of Windows 7 shipped in Europe will not include Internet Explorer 8 by default.

    Microsoft To Remove Windows 7 Starter Three App Limit

    anyweb
    By anyweb,
    Windows 7 Starter Edition, a sort of My First Operating System, always carried with it a massive braindead bug feature that limited the amount of applications you could simultaniously have open at just three. Yes, past tense, because someone over in Redmond apparently looked up and smelled the roses, and suggested removing this silly limitation. And so they did, according to Paul Thurrot.   via > http://www.osnews.com/story/21547/Microsof...Three_App_Limit

If we are successful in that, then we tracking to our shared goal of having PCs with Windows 7 available this Holiday season."

    Windows 7 Default UAC insecure ?

    anyweb
    By anyweb,
    When you run Windows 7 with the default UAC level, a technique using code injection and several components in Windows 7 that can auto-elevate can totally own your system. Microsoft gave several components in Windows 7 special privileges (like notepad.exe and calc.exe) in order to reduce the amount of UAC prompts in Windows. The end result, however, is that these components can be used to bypass UAC completely, and basically get full access to your machine. This works even on the RC.   The proo
