Windows 7 Device Stage Automatically Converts Media For Playback On Target Device

Microsoft Windows 7 comes loaded with lots of new features, and one of the most exciting new feature is Device Stage which introduces a brand new way to interact with your hardware devices from Windows desktop; Out-of-the-box support for hardware devices is one of the major strength for Windows over competing operating-systems and Windows 7 takes this to all new level with even more device-support allowing users to utilize services offered by their devices via new visual interface of device-stage without the need to install additional software or drivers.

looks very useful but where is the "download" link?

Yes. I'm a Mac user. But I used Windows 7 recently and I must say I'm pretty impressed. I'm even considering a switch since Snow Leopard didn't add any convenience updates.
