It is incredible how big the Windows 7 marketing spin doctors are at work lately. Every couple of days you see a new 'positive' effect if Windows 7 being leaked and all websites are posting about it.

Microsoft has clearly setup a very big spin-doctor campaign. So the latest one would be this InformationWeek has an interesting article on Hyper-Threading enhancements in Windows 7. Here's a bit:

Windows 7's improved hyper-threading support could be good news for users of processor-intensive applications, such as 3-D games and graphics programs.
