Windows 7: 5 Things I want in Windows 7 RTM


29 Mar 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7100 RC x86 OS
 
 
5 Things I want in Windows 7 RTM

These are ranked in the order of importance, with 1 being the most important in my eyes.

5: More eye candy as long as it doesn't slow up the OS.

4: Better multi core support

3: Better graphics card acceleration for 3D gaming

2: Better HD space compression so aps take up less space on the Hard disk

1: First, you know how you can switch tabs in IE with the new taskbar? Whether, the creators or Microsoft does it, I want it to be able to do that with other browsers such as Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, and so forth

Well, there you go. You are welcome to stateyour opinions on some of the things I want or say what you do. BTW, I am installing Windows 7 Build 7068(well, actually downloading using BitTorrent) as I type this so maybe my prayers will be answered before RTM. Wish me luck!

Because firefox is not designed for the new features of the Windows 7 Taskbar, like the Native Microsoft products are - yet !, will just take a little time for Mozilla's developers to catch up

Do you mean the tab preview?

1. Make the Taskbar more like the dock in OS X. Zooming in and out during mouseovers, as well as slightly reducing the size of the taskbar would be great.

2. Make the light blue bar on the left side of menus semi-transparent.

3. Make the log-on screen's background a dimmed version of the wallpaper of the highlighted user.

4. Make the right-click drop-down menus semi transparent.

firefox is a bit outdated now in terms of its speed. Unless they up the tempo its going to fade out now that chrome and safari are leading the pack in terms of speed. And with add ons nearly in the offering for chrome and IE8 speeding things up I think FF is at the bottom of the pile.. I was a firefox installer but have not had it on any of my builds since 5/6 months ago and I would never go back to it unless the sped things up a bit.
