Do you know, the secret code name for Microsoft's Windows 7 is called “Kudzu” (download). If you have multiple computers in the house, this software may spread faster than germs in a preschool. At least that's my expectation after seeing the new "HomeGroup" and media-sharing features that are among the coolest of the new operating system. HomeGroup automatically links computers in a home so they can share photos, music, videos and documents, as well as printers. There are lots of ways to do this already but it's often a hassle. Windows 7 automatically configures sharing after you tell the software whether you're connecting to a home, work or public network.
