Filesystem improvements Boot & Shutdown updates Performance features updates “Back to Work” updates Longer battery life
BitLocker Drive Encryption (BDE) Additional multifactor authentication method that combines a key protected by the Trusted Platform Module with a startup key stored on a USB storage device and a user-generated personal identification number. Ability to encrypt local volumes other than the system volume Group policy management Default is Group Policy editor (gpedit) New group policy tool provided with RSAT RSAT will be available in Q2 08
Extended Firmware Interface (EFI) SP1 will allow x64 computers to boot using the EFI. Extended File Allocation Table (exFAT). Transactional FAT (TransFAT) functionality provides transaction protection for disk reads and writes (analogous to the transactional capabilities added to NTFS in Vista) Speeds up storage allocation and supports OEM extensibility so that OEMs can define parameters to specify characteristics of a device, such as performance, or create a unique ID (global unique identifier, or GUID) for the device.
