2 What the Press Is Saying... “We checked out an early beta … the improvements to everything from user interface to memory management look highly promising.” “One thing becomes obvious after only a few minutes of playing with the new interface: The Windows 7 design team has paid an enormous amount of attention to small details and have focused on workflows and end-to-end experiences, not just on dialog boxes and feature sets.” “Microsoft is on the right path with Windows 7, focusing on ease of use, compatibility, better ways of interacting with the PC and managing the personal data.” “Microsoft has put together a well thought- through ecosystem, which eases enterprise deployment and administration and yet also gives end-users a desktop OS they can love.”

4 What Analysts Are Saying... "Early reports suggest that Ballmer's baby should enjoy a successful and prosperous life, meaning that Microsoft's customers and partners and the greater IT marketplace will find much to like and even more to gain in Windows 7." —Charles King, Pund-IT Principal Analyst Pund-IT "Most importantly, Windows 7's feature set was 98 percent locked early in the process. So no pet features crept in to subsequent build." Roger Kay, Founder and President of Endpoint Technologies Associates —Roger Kay, Founder and President of Endpoint Technologies AssociatesEndpoint Technologies AssociatesEndpoint Technologies Associates

5 Vision Development & Test Pre-Beta Beta ReleaseVision Development & Test Pre-Beta Beta Release Spend more time on planning & vision phase analyzing trends and needs before building features. Focus on end-to-end business scenarios – not just new features and technologies. Give our customer and partners a timeframe for the release and stick to our plan – 3 years for Windows 7. Disclose with higher degree of certainty and minimize changesDisclose with higher degree of certainty and minimize changes Engaging with partners earlier and more closely to enable seamless experiences and compatibility across hardware, software and services We are hereWe are here

6 Similar Compatibility: Most software that runs on Windows Vista will run on Windows 7. Exceptions will be low level code (AV, Firewall, Imaging, etc). Hardware that runs Windows Vista well will run Windows 7 well.Hardware that runs Windows Vista well will run Windows 7 well. Few Changes: Focus on quality and reliability improvements Deep Changes: New models for security, drivers, deployment, and networking
