Windows The past few weeks or so, there's been a lot of interest in a supposed battery status report bug in Windows 7. After installing Windows 7, some users reported seeing "consider replacing your battery"-warnings in systems that appeared to be operating just fine on Windows XP or Vista. After extensive research, Steven Sinofsky has now explained on the Engineering 7 blog that the fault is not with Windows 7 - it really, really is your battery.

Batteries degrade fast-- The funny part is how people have known this for years. I've heard the complaints myself: "My battery used to run for 2 hours, and now it's down to 20minutes."

Oddly enough, the MS wording is "recommended replacement."
