After posting as many as 30 changes that would be incorporated in the RC of Windows 7, the engineering team at Microsoft has posted another 27 changes, purporting that it will keep introducing the improvements to the operating system, so as to make it more user-friendly.

The proposed changes that are all set to make their way to the RC from the beta version are divided into various categories, including “Desktop Experience”, “Touch”, “Windows Explorer and Libraries”, “Performance”, “Device Stage”, “Devices and Printers”, “Device Installation”, “System”, and “Network”.

The engineering team has claimed to bring upon a range of useful improvements in the RC of the upcoming OS on the basis of customers" feedback.

Along the same line, commenting upon the changes surrounding the "Safely Remove Hardware" feature, now tagged as "Eject", “Based on feedback, we have integrated these two separate pieces of functionality... We have simplified the options by eliminating the drop-down sub menu and made the semantics for eject functionality more consistent across the different kinds of media”.

Already, there are several Windows 7 RC torrents have been spotted on the usual Torrent trackers and download websites. This could well mean that Microsoft is on target to deliver Windows 7 well in advanced, possibly in time for the back to school period in September 009 (that's in six months time). Could it be an early Christmas gift?
