Microsoft has focused on strong multicore support in Windows 7 to deliver superior performance. These improvements will really kick in when developers start using Visual Studio 2010, a software development suite that offers greatly improved tools to leverage the power of multiple CPUs.

The company is taking multi-core performance very seriously

It was easy, never had an issue ... after fixing the awful OEM settings (which was also a problem with XP too!)

Just disable WinME's System Restore and you removed most of the problems. On top of that, Disable the "Active Desktop", the new indexing, and use Netscape.

You would be left with what felt like a version of Win98 with slightly better memory performance when RAM was over 128Meg.

Bash WinME because it didn't add anything of significant value ... sure. But bash it because it was unstable? I just never saw the stability problems after disabling the above "features".

if you had to disable features to make it stable
then it was unstable..

weather or not it could be made stable if you know what to disable is another thing altogether =)
