There is one more feature not listed here that really interests me. I found this one on the Engineering Windows 7 Blog. Windows 7 bring additional 50 new fonts, with increased quality and range.

EW7 reports that Windows 7 will be the first Windows version to ship with more non-Latin fonts. The font packages contain major area of development for Indian languages. While Windows Vista consisted 9 Indian fonts, Windows 7 will ship with 40 more Indian fonts.

Another significant development in fonts is the Font control panel. The Font control panel shows thumbnails of fonts consisting the type of font style as shown in the screen-shot below. It even shows hidden-installed fonts.
