Windows 7 (formerly codenamed Blackcomb and Vienna) is the next release of Microsoft Windows, an operating system produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops, Tablet PCs, netbooks and media center PCs.
Microsoft stated in 2007 that it was planning Windows 7 development for a three-year time frame starting after the release of its predecessor, Windows Vista, but that the final release date would be determined by product quality.
Unlike its predecessor, Windows 7 is intended to be an incremental upgrade to Vista, with the goal of being fully compatible with device drivers, applications, and hardware which Windows Vista is already compatible with. Presentations given by the company in 2008 have focused on multi-touch support, a redesigned Windows Shell with a new taskbar, a home networking system called HomeGroup, and performance improvements. Some applications that have been included with prior releases of Microsoft Windows, most notably Windows Mail, Windows Movie Maker, and Windows Photo Gallery, are no longer included with the operating system; they are instead offered separately (free of charge) as part of the Windows Live Essentials suite.
Microsoft releases fix for Windows 7 MP3 corruption issue
Microsoft warned that there was a serious MP3 corruption issue in the Windows 7 beta (build 7000), which has been making the rounds on piracy networks. The company promised a fix, and it has now arrived. Regardless of where you got the beta from, I strongly recommend that you download and install this patch:
Install this update to resolve live and recorded TV issues in Windows Media Center, recorded TV playback issues in Windows Media Player, and MP3 file corruption issues in Windows. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer. This update is provided to you and licensed under the Windows 7 Pre-Release License Terms.
As you can see, Microsoft took the opportunity to fix other issues in the beta with this patch. Still, the most critical of the issues fixed was MP3 corruption. Here's how the corruption occurs: the first few seconds of an MP3 file will be cut if the header of the mp3 file is larger than 16 kilobytes and if metadata is written to the file. The corruption will occur either when the user edits the metadata from inside WMP12 or Explorer, or if WMP12 is set to automatically fill in missing metadata using the online service. The changes are irreversible, so make sure to install this patch before you play back any of your MP3s.
This is probably the most serious bug that has been discovered in the Windows 7 beta, and it's a good thing that it was, because Microsoft is about to give it out to the public in a couple of hours.
After refreshing the Windows 7 Customer Improvement Program page a plethora of times, I found that after the site released 5 keys of each architecture to me, it began to repeat the same ones, as if these are the only keys that Microsoft is distributing for this release. I would imagine that these keys can be used an infinite amount of times since there are only ten different keys total that Microsoft made. I'm not positive about that yet though. I'll test it out and get back to you on it. In the meantime, here are those keys!:
