Based on the information at https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=46531 it looks as if Timer Resolution has been used to identify and verify an issue with Chromium.
Chromium is the open-source project behind Google Chrome. I use Chrome every day on my work laptop and also no my netbook. I had no idea that Timer Resolution had helped to create such a great browser!
As I mentioned earlier I’ve been playing with Windows 7, I also just download a legit version for the 64bit edition from Microsoft, you can too from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/beta-download.aspx
Something that I stumbled upon when clicking around in the menus was the Math Editor. I wish I had this back in my Uni days, you can see a quick review at http://www.gottabemobile.com/2008/10/29/windows-7-math-input-panel-screenshots/
Basically it turns your scratchy math equations into nicely formatted equations. Now if this is compatible with a symbolic solver like MatLab then this will be a very nice tool for more than just reports.
Got my first hands on look at Windows 7 today. It was running under VirtualBox so the speed wasn’t outstanding but I have to say I liked what I saw.
Visually not much was new but the tools and utilities seem to have had a sensible make over. Installing was a breeze and faster than I remembered for any of the Vista Betas that I used.
Seems Microsoft might have learnt from the Vista debacle and made an OS with some substance.
