It appears that the word around the blogosphere was right. For what I believe is the first time ever, you will be able to disable or remove Internet Explorer from Windows without any special 3rd party tools with Windows 7 and IE8.

Here's a list of some other newly removable applications for Windows 7
  • Internet Explorer 8
  • Windows Media Player
  • Windows Media Center
  • Windows DVD Maker
  • Windows Search
  • Handwriting Recognition (through the Tablet PC Components option)
  • Windows Gadget Platform
  • Fax and Scan
  • XPS Viewer and Services (including the Virtual Print Driver)

Here's a link to an official MSDN blog post with more deails. :D

I heard from a friend that knows someone using Windows 7 beta, that it is much better than Vista.

I've played with it a bit and it is better than Vista. I even posted about it here

For a beta it's extreamly stable, actually I don't think I've managed to break Win7 yet.

It's a little faster then Vista on identical hardware but is still not as efficient as XP is on the same hardware.

We have a few documented incompatibilities between our industry software and Vista and most of them are not an issue under Win7. The majority of the ones that are fixed now were display problems caused by either Aero or WDDM.

I like the look and feel of Vista and it's what is on my current desktop, and I think Windows 7 is going to be an easy replacement. But on mission critical desktops XP is the fastest most reliable option I believe I have and will be the OS of choice until I'm unable to use anymore.

As far as removing IE8, I'm not sure, I'll give it a try and post the results.
