Last year I posted a video on how Microsoft India’s Development Center celebrated Windows 7’s launch. I then came across another version of the video posted on MSIDC’s official Youtube page, the video is a behind the scenes of the 7000 domino launch and in between they talk about what features of Windows 7 were developed in India. Why I didn’t blog about this earlier surprises me too.

Some of the coolest Windows 7 features that are touted as USPs were done at the Hyderabad center. I came across the video today, so here’s the pending post on what the engineers at MSIDC did for Windows 7:

  • Data backup and Restoration (this works like a charm and is a life saver.)
  • Sticky Notes customization
  • Location awareness of the Weather gadget
  • Multi-touch implementation in native apps like Paint and Wordpad.
  • The revamped Wordpad
  • Mobile broadband connectivity
  • Windows XP Mode (have shared drinks with the team, cool folks!)
