Nosing around for good Windows news sites today I found this Windows 7 video. It got my interest so I started watching an immediately it reminded me of a Windows Touch Screen video I’d watched months back. The video said that among other things the new computer could be used by restaurants allowing patrons to order by computer from their table, and was really neat (hint of sarcasm) for organizing and viewing your digital photo collection.
At any rate watching the video below I couldn’t help but wonder if Microsoft’s main goal with Windows 7 leans more toward power and security or fluff and sale-ability. While I realize one of the reasons the public views Windows as pockmarked with security problems ( does “… vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute…” ring a bell?) is because Windows is a high profile target.
I’m more concerned about Windows being more secure, less prone to crash, less prone to slow dramatically with use as time goes by (as the Registry gets bloated) and I can’t hjelp but wonder if Microsoft is seriously addressing this in Windows 7, or are they focused too much on the ‘fluff’ their marketing department believe will sell this next iteration of Windows?
