You want to delete a file or a folder and you are greeted by the words Access Denied, you don’t even know why access is denied and which program is using the file and deleting such file is really a headache.

Not anymore Windows 7 tells you which program is using the file so that you can do whatever is necessary, now at least you don’t have to resort to cruse means to delete a file. this tells me that Windows 7 is moving along in the right direction and is going to be the best operating system ever.

According to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer a new operating system named Windows Cloud is going to be launched as early as next month. Windows Cloud is a separate project from Windows 7, the operating system that Microsoft is developing to succeed Windows Vista.

Windows Cloud is intended for developers writing cloud-computing applications. It would be used to make web applications along the lines of Gmail, Hotmail, Zoho Office, or Windows Live Maps. Why an operating system is needed to create Cloud computing applications is still unknown. Hopefully Steve Ballmer will have answers but we’ll have to wait for that.
