21 changes to look for in the Windows 7 Release Candidate

There's more to the Windows 7 RC than just wallpaper

By Ed Bott

Windows 7 Build 7048, which leaked out of Microsoft's labs last week, isn't the long-awaited Release Candidate (RC), but it does include changes that were checked in after the beta release and will be a part of the RC when it's ready. So far, the new wallpaper (shown here) is getting most of the attention, but there are many more subtle tweaks as well. Here's a preview of 21 changes - some big, some small - that have been added since the December 2008 beta release.

Hi, I had a worst experience of my life with Windows Vista when I went for "Disk Cleanup Tool" Selected all options and when it finished, whole of my data and programs were gone. I can't measure which abuse should be used.... Also the great windows cannot copy to my flash even when the size of file is less than capacity...... ???? and this vista baby is more than 2 years
