Windows 7 will be prepped and primed for SSD

Many people have high expectations for Windows 7, especially when it comes to boosting performance. And since Windows Vista was often criticized for not really making good use of solid state drives, Windows 7 will do just that, according to a Microsoft briefing.

Set to be revealed at the WinHEC conference sometime this week, the briefing called "Windows 7 enhancements for solid state drives" will discuss ways in which Microsoft has thoroughly taken SSD into account this time. Expected improvements include file system optimization, increased support for SSD, netbook support, and the expected life span of SSD that are so often used in netbooks.

With Microsoft acknowledging the netbook craze and ramping up their efforts to make Windows 7 super netbook-friendly, they might just have an OS-winner on their hands.
