Windows Even though the EULA accompanying the beta build of Windows 7 prohibits the publication of benchmark results (good luck enforcing that one, Redmond), everybody and their dog will still compare the Windows 7 beta to Vista and Windows XP. Adrian Kingsley-Hughes is one of those benchmarking the beta, and according to his results, the Windows 7 beta beats both Vista and XP in just about every scenario.

Softening on the DRM I doubt will happen, afterall they created it and the market for it don't forget.

Does Windows 7 eliminate the annoying "(Not Responding)" message where a window freezes for a while or we have to wait for it retrieve a directory. Consistently this happens with a MSFT product one too btw, like IE, WMP, or explorer windows). It never happens with iTunes, or other third party programs, just the MSFT ones they have integrated into their horrid OS.
