WHo is Ed Bott?
Ed Bott is an award-winning technology writer with more than two decades' experience writing for mainstream media outlets and online publications. He is the author of more than 25 books on Microsoft Windows and Office, including the best-selling Microsoft Windows XP Inside Out, Second Edition.

Read his article:
"Since returning from PDC, I’ve been installing and using Windows 7 on a variety of hardware platforms (eight distinct desktop and portable systems so far). My immediate goal is to learn as much as possible so I can begin writing Windows 7 Inside Out. And there’s plenty to learn. The deeper I dive into Windows 7, the more I discover, including subtle changes and tweaks that aren’t obvious in a first look. In this post and its accompanying image gallery, I’ll share some of those details with you."

Windows Explorer
Networking
Performance
Troubleshooting and hardware
Security, backup, and recovery

Use the links above to jump to any topic you find interesting.

The purpose of this post is not to review Windows 7. It’s way too early for that. Rather, his objective is to call attention to the changes and design decisions that have gone into the product so far and to highlight features and changes you might not have noticed in the flurry of initial coverage.
