windows 7 box artWindows 7 is one step closer to release with the appearance of the new operating system in the official Microsoft Store.

While it has been pretty much a forgone conclusion that Microsoft was aiming to release Windows 7 this fall, the sudden addition of the operating system to the Microsoft Store pretty much cinches it.  They do not have prices listed yet, nor are they taking order, but putting up the box art for the various versions with “Coming soon” is not something one typically does with a product unless you are fairly clost to releasing it.

In an attempt to get consumers excited about the new operating system, they have listed some bullet points to help convince them that they need to upgrade to the latest version.

  • Faster, more responsive performance: Nobody likes to wait, so we designed the operating system to start up, shut down, resume from standby, and respond faster.
  • Streaming media in your home: Windows 7 makes it easy to use your PC to stream music, videos, or photos to your home audio-video system and other networked media devices.
  • Improved taskbar and full-screen previews: Pin any program to the taskbar so it’s always just a click away. Rearrange the icons on the taskbar just by clicking and dragging.
  • Desktop enhancements: Windows 7 simplifies how you work with the windows on your desktop. For example, Snaps lets you easily compare two open windows side-by-side.
  • Reduce interruptions: When Windows 7 needs your attention, you’ll see an Action Center icon and can find out more by clicking it. Or wait and read it later when you have time.
  • HomeGroup: This great new feature is set up automatically when you add the first PC running Windows 7 to your home network. Store digital photos on a computer in one room and access them in another.
  • Jump Lists: Access recently used files with just two clicks. Right-click the relevant program icon (such as Word) on your taskbar and Jump List will show your most recent, frequently used, and pinned Word documents.
  • Windows Search: Windows 7 makes search results more relevant and easier to understand. It also uses libraries to show all content of a particular type, like photos, in one spot.
  • No firm release date has been announced yet, but definitely expect it sometime this fall so it can be in those new computers under the Christmas tree.
