The latest release of Microsoft Windows is that of Windows 7, which can be used on a number of devices like personal computers, laptops, netbooks, PCs in the media center as well as business and home desktops. Windows 7 succeeds the Windows Vista operating system. Windows Server 2008 R2 was also released during this time. Unlike its predecessor, Windows Vista, which introduced several new features, Windows 7 was aimed at focusing towards being an upgrade on the Windows line of products to enable compatibility with applications and hardware, which Windows Vista lacked at that time.
In 2008, the presentations that Microsoft gave on the multi touch support, there was introduced a new design of Windows shell with a brand new taskbar also called the Superbar as well as a networking group based on home PCs known as the home group as well as improvements in the performance.

It would be wonderful to automatically start an FTP server as soon as one gets to know that it is down. So a system to indicate within thirty seconds that the server has stopped functioning would be welcome. The special features of the Operations Manager going through 500 monitors that have been built-in, event logging and rules, remote troubleshooting and SNMP snares would give the administrator a tight and good grip on the server performance, also including SQL and Active directory and Microsoft Exchange.
A couple days ago, Microsoft has released an update for Windows 7 and the Windows Server 2008R2, KB76902, which is essential to establishing or removing the service packs. While it is also indicative of the update for the service packs for both operating systems.
To test the Beta and RC versions of SP1, a patch similarly was required and it looks like Microsoft is preparing it for the final build. The SP1 consists of all updates that have been published for the two operating systems by Microsoft. There are however, 2 new features added to the 2008 R2 server that of a dynamic memory and Remote FX. The latter allows the administrators of Server 2008 R2 to give an excellent desktop virtualization with the use of full HD video.
