The buzz around Windows 7 continues to grow with great new features like AeroShake, integration with IE8, ISO Burning and more. My favorite Vista feature was the Start Menu. I love being able to open the start medallion and type a filename or program. I have no idea where I keep things anymore. Windows 7 takes the Start Menu to a whole new level. When I open the start menu, I no longer just open up a Program like Microsoft Word, I get the list of the last 10 documents I’ve been working on. Here are some links to see what’s coming in the next version of Windows:

DreamSpark High School launches! Great news for high school students, teachers, and administrators alike! Just one year ago we launched the DreamSpark offering which gives students the ability to directly download software using their university credentials. TODAY we are taking DreamSpark to a new level with DreamSpark High School and enabling high school students to access software for free.
In the US, DreamSpark High School allows SCHOOLS to sign up for the offering. The teachers or administrators at these schools can then provide the access to the students. This is a little different from DreamSpark at the university level where students can access the software directly.
Check out DreamSpark High School to gain access to products like Visual Studio, Creator’s Club, and Expression!
One of the programs I work on in the US is the Microsoft Student Partners Program and they’ve just started a Student Partners blog! Keep in touch with what Student Partners are doing around the world by following the blog or following us on Twitter @StudentPartners.
Microsoft Student Partners is one of our most active student programs worldwide. Students from around the world throw events, provide training, and help students access free software.
