Once you've gotten used the simplicity of needing only a single USB cable to dock all your laptop's devices, or gotten used to a futuristic desktop extended across two, three, or even six displays with the same cable -- it's hard to go back.
Of course, another little announcement at CES 2009 was the public beta of Windows 7.
So, not wanting to put any Windows 7 enthusiasts through any withdrawal pains, DisplayLink made preview drivers available this week, just before Microsoft's official release of the beta. We've been working on these drivers for several months now, and these are the same drivers shown at CES. There are still some months to the release of Windows 7, and these are early, preview drivers only... but DisplayLink is working to insure that the "it just works" simplicity of USB is matched with updated drivers when this new operating system hits the streets.
These drivers support
- The full Windows Aero experience for Windows 7
- The new Windows 7 Display Screen Resolution panel, with better control over extending and duplicating displays
- Support for the new "Windows-P" as a universal key combination for switching into and out of projector mode
- Up to six screen-real-estate-expanding displays for multitaskers using Win7, all from one USB cable
