Windows & Interoperability: 10 Issues Microsoft Still Hasn't Addressed in Windows 7
Windows 7 is a vast improvement over Windows Vista. Some might even say Windows 7 is what Vista should have been from the beginning. It has an improved task bar. It features a host of new security features that have helped reduce exploits. And Windows XP Mode has helped address some of the compatibility issues that arose when Vista first hit store shelves. But that doesn't mean that it's not without some issues. When Microsoft released Windows 7, it promised bigger and better things. It certainly delivered in many areas. But it fell flat in others. Today, Windows 7 lacks some elements that would otherwise make it an almost perfect operating system. This eWEEK slide show looks at 10 issues that Microsoft needs to address in Windows 7. Some are major problems, others are small. But if the company is diligent in addressing them, Windows 7 could be a far better operating system than it already is.
