Desktop windows7 Friday, January 9, Microsoft released Windows 7 for the public client Beta 1 beta. The day before, at 11:34 on January 8, Microsoft released the first version of Windows 7 Server Beta 1 beta.
Windows 7 is Microsoft's next-generation operating system, the current widely believed that Microsoft will release this year's Christmas shopping season before the final version of Windows 7.
December 16 last year, Microsoft sent out for some testers Windows 7 Beta 1 test invitation. Microsoft said in the letter of invitation, open to the public to download Windows7 Beta 1 released until early 2009, will.
But by the end of December, the version number is "7000" in Windows 7 beta version of the system is ahead of schedule posted to the Internet. Insiders pointed out that this version is likely that Microsoft will release Windows7 Beta 1.
Microsoft recently released Windows 7 RC version, has integrated DirectX 11 and Internet Explorer 8. Windows7 LOGODirectX 11 as a 3D graphical interface, not only to support the future of DX11 hardware, but also downward compatible with the current DirectX 10 and 10.1 hardware. DirectX 11 adds a new computing shader technology allows for more general-purpose GPU computing engaged in the work, not just the 3D calculations, which can encourage developers to better use of the GPU as a parallel processor.
Wireless networks in the recruitment advertising company revealed Windows 7, which is the next version of Windows to improve the network of some of the ideas.
Windows Vista a significant improvement in the network so that wireless networks and wired networks as easy to manage, but will the next major Windows development center on the Windows with a number of devices and nodes of interaction, ie the number of simultaneous connections wireless networks, allowing number of network communication at the same time, which means that time can be used across multiple networks without the need to switch to enhance the wireless throughput and range of mobility and provides a central control functions.
Existing wireless standard 802.11s, 802.11k, 802.11r, 802.11w, will not be Windows 7 also supports, in addition they also invite people to explore on the wireless mesh technology, a growing number of access points such as the can under the AP through the The simplest way to connect, so that each wireless client as a signal relay device, which will greatly increase the availability of WiFi.

Desktop windows7 Friday, January 9, Microsoft released Windows 7 for the public client Beta 1 beta. The day before, at 11:34 on January 8, Microsoft released the first version of Windows 7 Server Beta 1 beta.
Windows 7 Official Download
Microsoft is currently only available for RC and RTM versions of the download, only download the MSDN and Technet.
Windows 7 is currently the latest news:
Windows7 has completed the development of the RTM version of the five languages (including English) have been on time and landed MSDN, as well as TechNet, registered users for download, and provide serial number. Its version number is 7600.16385. 16385 shall be final version. Ordinary users of the retail boxed version of the release time is still not changed, is still October 22, 2009. Windows7 assessment mechanism and
Like with Vista, in Windows7, Microsoft introduced the system score function, built some of the components through the system to measure some of the core hardware such as CPU, RAM, graphics card and hard disk performance. In general, the higher scores and better hardware performance.
Windows7 assessment mechanism and Cece on your machine
With Vista, as in the final step in installing Windows 7, the user will have to endure the process of rating systems. The difference is that with Vista, however, WIndows 7 will not be like the Vista test then a long time. Of course, you can also delayed his run manually.
Understand the scoring system, scores
Let us look at what the system score of content:
* Memory (RAM).
* Graphics for games.
* Primary hard disk.
Microsoft is part of the original attached:
Microsoft debuted its Windows Experience Index (WEI) tool in Windows Vista as a way to measure the relative performance of the components in your PC. As such, each key hardware device in the PC, including the microprocessor, RAM, graphics (for the UI and for more advanced tasks), and hard disk, is assessed and awarded a sub-score; and the lowest scoring component is used as the basis for the system's overall WEI score. In general, a higher-scoring PC will perform better, overall , than a lower-scoring PC. Likewise, a higher-scoring component on one PC likely performs better than a lower-scoring component on a second PC.
Take a look at the meaning of scores:
1.0 to 1.9 - the basis of points, even if only 1.0, also shows that to achieve the minimum requirements of Windows 7
2.0 to 2.9 - a good performance. Windows Aero may be available
3.0 to 3.9 - Windows Aero will surely enable the
4.0 to 4.9 - even in high-definition displays or dual display will also have a good performance in
5.0 to 5.9 - can run high-end gaming, 3D modeling software, as well as high-definition video editing software
6.0 to 6.9 - support for DirectX 10
7.0 to 7.9 - powerful performance
Windows7 official release of the six versions of
Windows 7 Starter (Starter Edition)
Windows 7 Home Basic (Home Basic Edition)
Windows 7 Home Premium (Home Premium Edition)
Windows 7 Professional (Professional Edition)
Windows 7 Enterprise (Enterprise Edition)
Windows 7 Ultimate (Ultimate Edition)
WIN7 scoring summary
In Vista, the system is used to lift the rate a beginning user for the system configuration of the concern. Today, the market has no one computer can not run Aero, while WIndows 7 is clearly in the low-end machines to run more smoothly than Vista. So why Microsoft should continue to update this function? I think, primarily to enable users to understand their own performance of the machine it, but it will also mislead the user to a certain extent, some unnecessary hardware upgrades.
WIN7 state of development
At present, Windows7 has been developed to build7600.16385, this version is to be published the final version. The version number seems a little "jump" from 7264 and flew to the 7600 directly. Comparing the version of the driver the whole, the author using a Lenovo F41 notebook computers, bottles and, after a comparison and found that only Beta drivers installed seven samples (12 samples), RC 8-like, but this version was installed by the 11 samples ! This version compatibility is not bad, unlike the Beta was always one to start Thunder (a download tool) is always after the error dialog box pops up, nor did the legendary "can not run antivirus software."
Microsoft announced Windows 7 system, the simplest configuration includes:
1GHz processor (32-bit or 64-bit)
1GB RAM (32-bit processors), or 2GB RAM (64-bit processors)
16GB of available hard disk space (32-bit processors), or 20GB of available hard disk space (64-bit processors)
Support for DirectX 9 graphics with WDDM 1.0 or higher version of the driver
Windows 7 on hardware requirements and Vista is not much compared to fall. The latter's hardware configuration requirements are as follows:
1GHz processor (32-bit or 64-bit)
1GB RAM (Home Edition), or 1GB RAM (other versions)
16GB available hard disk space
Support for DirectX 9, with 64MB memory (Home Edition), or 128MB memory and supports WDDM (other versions)
RC available for download from the Microsoft version of Windows 7 will be held June 1, 2010 expired, which means that users can in the next one year free use of Windows 7. Microsoft director John Currant Client Group, said Microsoft encourages users to upgrade from a Beta version of Windows 7 to the RC version. RC version of Windows 7 will include all the features of the final release.
With the Internet and in Europe, particularly in this special edition version of the set, Windows7 version and the regional strategy are finally settled. Although more than the current XP / Vista simplifies a lot of times, but because of market segmentation (in particular the European Anti-monopoly), Windows7 version is still very much divided 32/64-bit count will reach 30, if ( Starter Edition only supports 32-bit).
Below is from Windows Vista (XP) to the version of Windows7 division of the road map, which Windows7 Enterprise Edition only through Volume Licensing Software Assurance projects to large corporate customers, rather than individual retail and therefore not listed.
System in the region has been divided into two blocks of developed and developing countries, to the era of Windows7 on the whole still is the case, including Ultimate, Enterprise Edition, Professional Edition, Home Premium Edition, Internet this (SmallNotebookPC) Dedicated Starter Edition universal , while the Home Basic version and low-cost PC (Value PC) Starter Edition is limited to developing markets.
Because of the attitude of tough EU anti-monopoly, Microsoft has been specially developed markets into the European region and the non-European regions, stripping IE browser and / or WMP player is a special edition prepared for the European region, in which "Windows7E" No IE, "Windows7N" neither IE nor WMP, of course, they also have the Ultimate Edition, Enterprise Edition, Professional Edition, Home Premium Edition, and the Internet version of the minutes of this entry so users in Europe, get the real version of the hand should be "Windows7 Ultimate E "or" Windows7 Home Premium Edition N ".
Here that the concept of the European region, specifically including the European Union (EU) 15 member countries, and the same is under the European Economic Area (EEA) Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, as well as Croatia, Switzerland, a total of 20 countries; and in the language context, Windows7 supports a total of 36 species, 23 species in Europe will be, including: Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish.
Windows7E / N will work with other "full version" available at the same time, Microsoft IE8 will also be provided free of charge to install a separate package for OEM manufacturers and consumers to choose from, but also free Windows7Internet Pack, from the IE8 browser and Windows Live Essentials Service Pack Unit Cheng, the latter including Windows Live Messenger, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Movie Maker are no longer tied directly to pre-installed applications.
OEM manufacturers can choose to directly to consumers Windows7E / N, but this will obviously be very troublesome, it is estimated that most PC makers will choose a browser pre-installed on their own, where either IE, can also use Firefox, Chrome, Opera , Safari, etc. either.
 Local 5 later this week, Microsoft announced the decision to the European ship the same full version of Windows 7, because of Windows 7 E deployment up too much trouble, and may just be doing exercise in futility, and made PC manufacturers complain about reaching the sky.
Microsoft deputy general counsel Dave Heiner, said in a statement: "According to last week's progress, as well as PC manufacturers and other business partners, the feedback, I am pleased to announce that we will be in October (22) in the European shipping and the rest of the world the same version of Windows 7. "
Dave Heiner further explained that: "No, the decision to ship Windows 7 E from PC vendors and partners concerns. Many are worried that the proposed interface, if you choose to be (EU) Commission's final approval, we will stop selling Windows 7 E, which will inevitably bring about the change on the version of the trouble. In addition, Windows 7 E The time has made too late, will confuse consumers so that they do not understand where he bought a PC in the end is what the system. "
This will be the way to solve another problem is that users do not have Windows Vista in Europe and then was forced to a new clean installation of Windows 7 (because of Vista, there are IE7), Microsoft may also sell upgrades to the European version of Windows 7,.
Microsoft also guaranteed that those who booked at preferential prices to consumers will be Windows 7 E direct access to the full version, but the price of full version of Windows 7 in Europe, like the initial decision will not only equivalent to other regions as an updated version of the grade, but rather to "proper" level.
1. More simple to manage startup items
msconfig, this is a self-Windows98 has been known to let the user within the system tools, has always been that it can not directly start menu, Microsoft should be said that this important function of the system settings to do so.
2. Faster startup and shutdown
When you have a Windows Me features why XP, Vista would have been out?
3. Diagnostic Tool
Hoped to have a good diagnostic tool to help users understand the operating system fails, the problem, rather than a simple error code.
4. Better Burn function
CD / DVD burning is a routine work, but Windows built-in mechanism is not friendly, so that users need to spend a lot of the cost to buy professional software.
(Has built-in ISO / IMG burning program)
5. 64bit only
Computer hardware development to the present, which is a shift to 64-bit time, or else the user for more than 4GB of memory on all wasted.
7. Based on the System Restore Image
The current system is still used to restore the delta mechanism, but a Windows backup to restore to a large extent still need to mirror - because it is relatively simple, this function has been provided by a third-party vendors.
8. Microsoft Toolbox
This idea can be used to solve the user's compatibility issues, users can list the current drivers, patches, installation of games, hardware and software and automatically find the latest solutions.
9. Procedure Cache
Vista users now has begun to cache frequently used programs into memory, it looks much faster speed, but the caching feature also need to be strengthened, so that users know what is needed and guide the user to do the cache.
10. Drive Availability
The promotion of poor Vista drivers can not keep up to a large extent the problem is, Microsoft needs to do more development of compatibility so that firms will have better compatibility with drivers, at least not have loss of function.
11. Home User Licensing
When a family home, a lot of computer time, Windows of the how sell? As authorized in accordance with a set of Windows Maihao times? Microsoft should find a way to save the expenditure for home users.
(In Europe and America, there windows7 family package, for the three windows7 Home Premium version of the license)
A new file system format. Can be more secure, fast processing documents.
13. All for One and One for All
So many versions of Vista will make people dizzy mess, in fact, only three is enough: Home, Business / Pro, Server.
14. Better GUI
Vista's GUI is to attract users to a major bright spot, but the new GUI and some operational issues that need improvement, such as toolbars and Open / Save dialog box also follows a previous old style.
15. Can be customized installation
What components do not need and should be decided by the user, rather than Microsoft, at least for now Vista then reveals all the things move in the hard disk is rude behavior.
16. Game Mode
Playing games, Windows do not have access to the vast majority of functions are, in order ran better results, why not set up a company similar to the "safe mode" special model?
17. The new UAC
Must acknowledge that UAC is a good idea, but for now at least so unfriendly, UAC needs to be improved, at least let the user know why interrupt their operation.
(windows 7's UAC number 29% less than the VISTA)
18. XP Virtual Machine
Vista compatibility has already become a lesson, like the Mac OS X Aqua just up to provide a virtual machine technology allows the application under the old system, the user is running is also a very urgent requirement.
(Microsoft officials are now free to provide this functionality RC versions: "XP mode")
19. Modular operating system
A customizable operating system will make it easier for users to use and more stable, such as the Linux kernel and the GUI is worthy of separate study.
* Windows 7 are primarily designed around five key - the unique design for notebook computers; application-based service design; the user's personalized; audio-visual entertainment optimization; the user ease of use of the new engine.
* Windows 7 will be more modular, component-based - but Microsoft has announced that Windows 7 will not contain MinWin core (from May 27 News.com, Sinofsky Q & A).
* Windows 7 will be Vista's "big update" - Microsoft has announced Windows 7 will use basically the same with the Vista driver model, namely, the basic does not appear similar to the XP to Vista compatibility issues.
* Windows 7 will allow users to run in virtual mode before the program - which will minimize compatibility issues. However, Microsoft will launch a similar SoftGrid virtualization solution, or other means is also unknown.
* Windows 7 will include touch functionality 10:00 - It depends on the hardware manufacturer whether the product launch of touch.
* Windows 7 will work with Windows Live services and software to integrate more closely - we have introduced a lot, of course, and more.
* Windows 7 will be more closely integrated with Windows Mobile - Microsoft's Bill Gates has said that: Windows will be more closely connected with the mobile device.
* Windows 7 will increase the "HomeGroup" network support - code-named "Castle", has planned the launch of Vista.
* Windows 7 will be built-in Virtual Hard Disk Technology (Virtual Hard Disks) - a commercial version exists in the Vista machine backup function for the realization of
* Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said: "I do not agree Windows7 a minor" small updates ", if" small updates ", not use 2-3 years..
More simple: Windows 7 will allow easier searching and using information, including local, network and Internet search functions, intuitive user experience will be more advanced, but also integrated automation application submission and cross-program data transparency.
More secure: Windows 7 will include improved security and functionality of the legitimacy of the data protection and management will be extended to peripheral devices. Windows 7 will improve the role-based computing programs and user account management, data protection and robust collaboration inherent conflict to build bridges between, but also open the enterprise-class data protection and access permission.
Better connected: Windows 7 will further enhance mobile working ability, regardless of when, where, any device can access data and applications to open a special collaboration with strong experience, wireless connectivity, management and security features could be expanded. Performance and current capabilities, and emerging mobile hardware will be optimized, multi-device sync, management and data protection features will be expanded. Finally, Windows 7 will bring flexible computing infrastructure, including fat, thin, and network-centric model.
At a lower cost: Windows 7 will help businesses optimize their desktop infrastructure, with a seamless operating system, applications, and data migration capabilities, and simplify PC supply and upgrades, and further towards a complete application updating and patching efforts. Windows 7 will include improved hardware and software virtualization experience, and expand PC's own Windows help and solutions for IT professionals diagnose the problem.
There are some features originally designed for Vista, such as Windows PowerShell and Windows FS, although they would also be a fundamental part of Windows 7, but it they may be released after the completion of a separate. Windows PowerShell has now paid out separately.
Windows 7 will be a "Sandbox" (sand box) function, its function in the development of Longhorn system close to the "Alpha / White Box", all non-managed code will run in the sand box system, so that access to "outside" will be the operating system control. The visit will be on the bottom of the sandbox within the prohibition from the same well of the file system, hardware abstraction layer (HAL) and full direct access to memory addresses. All of the external applications, documents and agreements at the request will be the operating system management, and any malicious behavior will be immediately suspended. If this method is successful, it indicates a very strong safety and security, if the malicious software can be effectively locked in a glass box, then it is virtually impossible to cause any harm to the system.
Bill Gates has also mentioned another interesting feature is that a common language can be interpreted the user's instructions. This includes the "auto-complete the entire sentence instructions" functions in the current mainstream search engines already have this feature (for example: Microsoft's own Live Search, Yahoo and Google), which function is to enter the wrong syntax also allows the computer normal execution instruction section.

Windows 7 designed around five major focus of - the unique design for notebook computers; application-based service design; the user's personalized; audio-visual entertainment optimization; the user ease of use of the new engine. windows 7 start of the screen
Easier to use
Windows 7 to do a lot of user-friendly design, such as fast to maximize the window half-screen display, jumping a list of quick fixes such as system failures, these new features to make Windows 7 to be the most easy to use Windows.
Windows 7 greatly reduced start Windows speed, according to measurement, in 2008 to run in the low-end configuration, the system load time is generally not more than 20 seconds, more than Windows Vista, compared with more than 40 seconds, is a big progress.
Windows 7 will allow easier searching and using information, including local, network and Internet search functions, intuitive user experience will be more advanced, but also integrated automation application submission and cross-program data transparency.
Windows 7 desktop and Start Menu Windows 7 includes improved security and functionality legitimacy, but also the data protection and management extended to peripherals. Windows 7 improved role-based computing programs and user account management, data protection and robust collaboration to build bridges between the inherent conflict, but also open the enterprise-class data protection and access permission.
Windows7 can help businesses optimize their desktop infrastructure, with a seamless operating system, applications, and data migration capabilities, and simplify PC supply and upgrades, and further towards a complete application updates and patches to do so.
Windows7 further enhance the mobile ability to work, regardless of when, where, any device can access data and applications to open a special collaboration with strong experience, wireless connectivity, management and security features will be further expanded. So that the performance and current capabilities, and emerging mobile hardware has been optimized to expand the multi-device synchronization, management and data protection. Finally, Windows7 will bring flexible computing infrastructure, including fat, thin, and network-centric model.
Windows 7 is Vista's "small update big change"
Microsoft has announced Windows 7 will use the same with the Vista driver model, namely, the basic does not appear similar to the XP to Vista compatibility issues.
Be able to run in the system for free legal XP systems
Microsoft's next-generation virtualization technologies - Windows virtual PC, the program comes with a Windows XP legal authorization, as long as the processor supports hardware virtualization, you can run freely in the virtual machine is only suitable for XP applications, and even though virtual system crash to deal with them is also very convenient.
A more humane UAC (User Account Control)
Vista's UAC can be said to make users who live in Vista, but Windows 7 in, UAC control level increased to four, to control the UAC through such a rigorous level, so that UAC security without cumbersome.
winFS is a new file system format. To welcome the arrival of this perfect storm of technological development, Microsoft in building a next-generation Windows File System (code-named WinFS) has invested a lot of energy. WinFS product team in the innovation process in the Windows file system guided by the following three core principles: to enable users to "Find", "relevance" and "operation" their information.
Be able to touch on the one hand personally for Windows
Windows 7 includes a touch of native functions, but this depends on whether the introduction of touch the hardware manufacturer products. System supports 10-point touch, indicating Windows is no longer only through the keyboard and mouse in order to contact the OS.
Only the basic applications pre-installed software, other online to find
Windows 7 machines ship with only the basic software - such as Windows Madia Player, WordPad, Notepad, photo viewer and so on. While others such as Movie Maker, Photo Gallery, and other programs, Microsoft in order to shorten the development cycle is no longer included within the. Users can on the official Windows Live website, free to choose Windows Live, free software.
By far the most gorgeous but the most energy-efficient Windows
Multi-function task bar of the Aero effects of Windows 7 is more ornate, with collision effects, water droplets effect. These add much color than Vista.
However, Windows 7's resource consumption is the lowest. Fast to implement not only the efficiency of a competitive edge, notebook battery life has also increased significantly. Microsoft's CEO, said, Windows 7 to be the most green, most energy-efficient systems.
Speaking of WindowsVista, the first reaction of many ordinary users is probably the new translucent windows AeroGlass. While the user interface of this mixed, but it can take advantage of GPU acceleration features for truly is a step forward, but also continue to adopt this form of interface, and overall be improved, including support for DX10.1.
Windows7 and the Desktop Window Manager (DWM.exe) to take full advantage of GPU acceleration of resources, and support for Direct3D 10.1 API. The advantages are:
1, from the low-end integrated graphics to high-end flagship graphics card can be well supported, but also equally good performance.
2, stream processors will be used to render the window blur effect, commonly known as ground glass.
3, the share of each window of memory (compared to Vista) can be reduced by 50% or so.
4, support for more and more rich thumbnail animation, including "Color Hot-Track" - mouse over different applications on the taskbar icon when the icon highlights a different background color will differ. And the implementation of the replication process status indicator will also be displayed on the taskbar, the mouse rolls over the same application icon, the icon will highlight the background color gradient with the movement of the mouse.
Under the driver do not worry, Update click on the OK
Vista still installed when you first installed video card and sound card drivers, which is obviously a very troublesome thing, is especially true for the master machine. However, Windows 7 is not going to consider this issue, use Windows Update to search the Internet, you can find a suitable driver.
windows 7 digital audio, what changed?
To support non-Microsoft audio format
After much was removed, Microsoft compromise this time, Windows 7 natively supports AAC format playback, this is the iTune's popular audio formats, Microsoft is also one of the Xiang Yao. Before Windows Media Player can only play Microsoft's own audio format, it seems times have changed.
Microsoft Windows7 home network in improved ease of use, of course, Web audio is no exception. You can play in all networked devices on the Windows 7PC streaming media, as long as the device supports DLNA standard version 1.5. Windows Media Player can also convert your media devices are supported format.
Windows7 includes Bluetooth audio driver, which means that it will natively support the Bluetooth headset or speakers, without too much setup and installation. (Lack of Bluetooth support vista attracted many users complain about)
Can be free to choose the audio device, for example, by the speaker sound when playing music, playing the network the phone will be smart to choose your headphones.
This is the Windows 7's new features, can you PC or even all your networked PC to conduct the same type of document classification, that they should go in a different folder. So you PC's music will all go to the Music Library, is such music can be better management.
Obviously this idea is good, and for software engineers, which makes it easy to establish a database, etc., but for ordinary users, to understand such an abstract concept is clearly not so easy.
These virtual folders in Windows 7 in a "bank", it would be "simple and easy to use VS 'discussion of the main event. These libraries will form a system, while the user is almost impossible to learn from other parts of the system any information. is very simple, is not it. But the system itself is actually very complex because of too abstract. At the same time, users also need to be prepared for the system backup tool, otherwise, one does not care, some important documents on the so lost.
This is from inside the Zune software introduced into the Media Center, when you play an album in Media Center, the background will automatically download all your album cover.
Tray notification area
Tray notification area has been criticized by Windows users, all these years Microsoft has been trying to solve this problem, from the hide inactive icons to Vista, allows users to choose. However, in Windows 7, Microsoft has re-introduced before the concealment strategy. Therefore, Windows 7, all the system icons are hidden by default, the user must manually open the icon will be displayed.
Very carefully, right? But I will say is that this way, the notification area, and seems much more simple, but at the expense of the user's ease of use. In Vista, at least we know that these programs are running, we can by Windows Defender in the system resource manager or Windows Live Onecare to shut down these programs, no matter what, there are always ways. However, in Windows 7, the default is no icon to show that we did not know these programs are not running in the end in the. Even more funny is that in Windows 7, Microsoft Windows Defender removed in the system resource manager, this way, want to cancel these programs are not running a boot startup is so easy.
