LABS GALLERY: Windows 7 Provides Plenty of Improvements

by Andrew Garcia
Microsoft's Windows 7 recently reached the release-to-manufacture milestone, the last step before the new operating system's official Oct. 22 launch. Delivering a good amount of eye candy, a number of user enhancements, a few interesting security additions (but only for the customers at the high end) and a decent performance boost, Windows 7 is certainly capable. But is it a compelling upgrade? Check out eWEEK Labs' walk through Windows 7.
