Windows 7 Offers USB Drive Sharing Option

As Windows 7 is set to release sometime in October, today we heard there is an update to USB support.  Honestly, I don’t know exactly what it means, but the quote is, “adding new USB and drive sharing support options…”

Does this mean you can set a USB stick as a shared device, maybe there is a default USB wireless support built in, I’m not sure, but maybe the following information will help.

The information I have is simply a download link to try out the “release candidate” for Windows 7.  Here it is.  If you have time, give it a download and try…see what the USB sharing is all about.  I’d do it myself, but honestly…I’m too knee deep in other projects at the moment.

As a quick highlight, the Windows 7 requires an additional 1GB of RAM and 15GBs of disk space.  We’ve also learned that XP virutal desktop will be preloaded on most new PCs and clearly an option for those who upgrade.  Meaning, any software package built around .NET and XP will have full support under Windows 7.  Microsoft did this so that large corporations don’t have to worry about software updates with an OS update.  Just focus on the OS update and the software will still work.  BUT – Windows 7 is built on Vista code [scary] so only time will tell.
