ExtremeTech takes a look at the improvements Microsoft made in Windows 7 to make it better than Vista:
There is always room for improvement, though. Service Pack 1 bundled up a host of performance-related enhancements and other fixes, which was definitely welcome. And now Microsoft is working on both Vista Service Pack 2 and Windows 7.
What is this Windows 7 beast? If you want more detail on the key enhancements in Windows 7, check out Michael Muchmore's in-depth look at PCMag.com. Muchmore's impressions are based an early Windows 7 build, plus a technical briefing on Windows 7 sponsored by Microsoft.
I was at that same briefing, but rather than discuss specific features, I'll try to put Windows 7 in context with Vista as it currently stands, and why Windows 7 may draw in users who have avoided or rejected Vista.

It will suck anyway. They are introducing features that are already known thanks to Linux and the best desktop effects a user could have: compiz fussion. Nothing new for an advanced user. maybe some newbie user will find this OS interesting...
