Internet Explorer 8 will be not only an apex of performance, but also the next major iteration of the Windows client, according to Microsoft. After the Windows Vista experience, Microsoft has developed a comprehensive
strategy for evolving the Windows 7 performance, introducing a set of criteria that will dictate whether the operating system will get shipped or not. One small part of the Redmond giant's efforts to drive the performance of Windows 7, is working with the
community of partners and developers building hardware and software products around the operating system. In this context, Microsoft is offering a set of utilities it is using internally to sniff out performance issues.
In addition to working on Windows 7 specific features and services, we are sharing tools, tests and data
with our partners. The tools are available to enthusiasts as well. The tools we use internally to detect and correct boot issues are freely available today
here as a part of the Windows Performance Toolkit. While not appropriate for most users, the tools are proving to be very helpful for some.
Looks like somebody at Softpedia misread.
Umm I downloaded some xperf tools months ago, is there something new here or just marketing for them?
