Video Link - Why Develop on Windows 7? - User Experience

Windows 7 gives users what they want, which makes them happy which is what you want.  The new Windows 7 Taskbar has bigger icons, which are easier to see and touch if you have a touch screen.  Jump lists, little menus for common actions, custom categories, custom tasks and thumbnail previews lets users see what an app is doing without switching to the application.  Use taskbar buttons for custom progress or status information through icon overlays, get more from the taskbar buttons by consolidating and uncluttering the interface.  Remote control your application from the taskbar with Thumbnail Toolbars.  As an application developer you can deliver a better user experience by building on these features and more.
