In the past few weeks that I have been playing with Windows 7, I have found many small and simple improvements that no one talks about! I’m guessing they are all talking about the big improvements.

The first of these small things is that Windows Media Player now plays QuickTime MOV files, even if you have no QuickTime Player installed! Wow, who saw that coming?

Now, to be not too patronizing, Windows Media Player did throw fits while trying to play one of the movie files I asked it to play. However, it did play many of them–look at the screenshot below!

This should keep people who work with both Windows and Mac machines happy!
