Yves Neyrand, director of test for Windows Developer Experience team, helped create multitouch functionality for Windows 7 that allows the use of touch to perform actions normally performed with mouse and keyboard. On the eve of Windows 7’s launch, PressPass spoke with Neyrand about the new features in Windows 7. “What's the thing you're proudest of in Windows 7? Neyrand: Shipping pretty much exactly on the ship date we had set for ourselves early in the product cycle and with the best final test results I have seen in all my releases of Windows. Both can be attributed to our ability to "plan the work, and work the plan" and certainly validated all our efforts in that respect.”
