the look of Windows 7 may seem to be nothing more than some polish applied
to the Vista Aero theme, make no mistake this is a full rebuilt replacement
operating system, more than just Vista done right. From driver support to
multi-touch groundwork for the future, better battery management for laptops
to the most user-friendly interface Microsoft has ever had, Windows 7 is
by far the best operating system from Microsoft to date.
Windows 7 will support both 32-bit and 64-bit systems. The bare minimum requirements for the 32-bit include a 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB available hard-disk space, and a DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver. 64-bit systems will require at least a 1 GHz processor, 2GB RAM, 20GB of free space on your hard drive, and a DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver.
2010 is more "role-based" than previous versions. There are features tailored
to employees in "roles such as research and development professionals, sales
people, and human resources." In its Internet implementation, Office 2010
incorporates features of SharePoint Server and borrows from "Web 2.0" ideas.
Microsoft Office 2010 includes updated support for ISO/IEC 29500:2008, the International Standard version of Office Open XML (OOXML) file format. Office 2010 also provides read support for ECMA-376, read/write support for ISO/IEC 29500 Transitional, and read support for ISO/IEC 29500 Strict. The intent of the ISO/IEC is to allow the removal of the Transitional variant from the ISO/IEC compliant version of the OOXML standard. Microsoft Office 2010 supports OpenDocument Format (ODF) 1.1, which is an OASIS standard.
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 is the most advanced Windows Server
operating system to date, designed to power the next-generation of networks,
applications and Web services.
With Windows Server 2008 you can develop, deliver and manage rich user experiences and applications, provide a highly secure network infrastructure, and increase technological efficiency and value for your small to medium business.
Windows 7 was built around our feedback, so we'll see a lot of things
we've asked for. We asked Microsoft to make everyday tasks faster and
easier, to make our PC work the way we want it to, and to make it possible
to do new things in both business and home environments.
And that's exactly what Microsoft are doing.
