It is probably only a matter of days now until Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 will RTM. Thus, it is time for every Windows admin to get acquainted with the enhancements of both operating systems. I've already tried to list the new features of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 when both operating systems were still in beta. I didn't update those posts for a while because one can’t really be certain which features are included until Microsoft actually releases it. There also was only sparse documentation available but this has changed. While I am planning to update the feature list bit by bit, keep in mind that it only gives an overview of the new features.

In this new series, I will introduce one Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2 feature, in detail, every week or so. If you want, then you can help me. There are several ways of doing it. It would be quite helpful if you could tell me which features you want to be explained. You can also send me links to articles about Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2 features you found useful. I will also be posting videos and webcasts that demonstrate features better than a text can. Thus, if you find a nice Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2 video on YouTube or somewhere else, please let me know.
Last but not least, you’re welcome to review or explain a Windows 7 or R2 feature yourself, or share tips and tricks you discovered. Make sure to take a screenshot or two to demonstrate the feature.
I hope you understand that I can only publish articles of a certain quality. If you feel uncertain or if your article is longer than a half a page, contact me first to discuss the details. Of course, you will be named as the author and it can be linked to your website, if you want. Include a sentence or two about yourself so the 4sysops readers will know whom they’re dealing with.
