Overall, I think MS has done a good job, but time will tell, I suppose.
That was available in Windows XP. From everything I have heard from the commercials so far for why Windows 7 is good, its all available in previous versions of Windows if you know what you are doing. I mean they honestly advertised that you can use a network as something new. I could play files on another computer in my house with Windows 95 through my network. I haven't used Windows 7, probably won't for a few more years (still rocking XP).... but all of the commercials so far have left me asking 'so what is new?' because I haven't seen them actually advertise something that I couldn't do in a previous version of Windows.
