In December 2006, Microsoft requested feedback from a select group of invitees regarding what they would like to see fixed, changed and/or added to future Windows builds. The Windows team got an earful: Nearly 800 new feature requests, another 560-plus change requests and almost 400 defects.
That list has been winnowed down to about 70 of the most popular requests and posted the week of July 9 to Microsoft’s Connect beta site.
This isn’t the official Windows Seven or Windows Eight feature list. But the list does indicate some of the features that testers are the most interested in seeing make it into the next Windows release or two.
