Windows 7 has thousands, if not tens of thousands, little tweaks and neat new features that might or might not make it worthwhile to deploy. Picking though all of the changes is a matter for people who have a lot, and we do mean a lot, of time on their hands.

This checklist helps you see what features are available and how those could be of benefit to your business. It helps you some of the following questions for each feature:

  • Do we need this feature in our environment?
  • How would this feature help us to achieve our project vision?
  • What would it take to configure this feature to our liking?
  • Is there a simpler, cheaper, or easier way to use this feature?
  • Which prototype will we try to have this done by?
  • Where will the configuration information be stored?
