  • Till now you have probably heard about Windows 7 and those who are using know that this is very fast and lighter version of windows, very reliable. What is The New Efficiency? It is about how IT can help you to ‘with less do more.’ Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010 bring innovative solutions that are designed to power your business now, from simplified management and enhanced support to integrated systems and optimized connectivity. The New Efficiency is where cost savings, productivity and innovation meet. It is based on four pillars Optimized Desktop Optimized Server Unified Communication Business Security With the economic downturn, all of us are working with less money and fewer people. In a time we are working with less dollars and fewer people, there’s a tremendous pressure on IT in particular to make sure we are scrutinizing every single dollar we are spending and that we are just every investment to maximize its return. So we expect these tough budgets to continue and yet, we still believe that IT is an incredibly important area to drive innovation and productivity. Now the pressure we face aren’t just about IT cost. The way people work has changed dramatically. 03/22/10 21:15 © 2007 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

  • Let’s start with the taskbar. By now you’ve probably used Windows 7 and noticed some differences between it and Vista. Actually, there are tremendous differences, and many of those are under the covers . The Windows 7 taskbar offers many improvements, both cosmetic and functional. Some of these features require explicit application support, while others happen automatically. Because applications can be pinned to the taskbar, the “quick launch” toolbar is no longer used in Windows 7. Users can easily pin and unpin applications to the taskbar and quickly launch them from there. “ Aero-Peek” is a new feature that allows users to sample background application instances and quickly monitor their status. Users also can interact with executing applications through the application’s preview. They can perform many tasks with the application without having to maximize it or activate the application using tabs. And finally, jumplists are about creating shortcuts that don’t require the application to be running. Just like a notification icon with context menu, there are many times when it makes sense to have runtime actions available. We’ll take a good look at jumplists in this session. 03/22/10 21:15 © 2007 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
