here’s another thing that i’ve taken for granted for the past three years using windows vista – secure wireless access even in public.  panera is my favorite place to find it and as you can see by the screen shot below even as i post this blog entry, windows 7 knows that this wireless network is public so it does advertise my homegroup, shares, etc.  i’ll post more on using windows 7 at home over the weekend (there are some more really cool things you can do there).
