Windows So far, Microsoft has been very tight-lipped about Windows 7, carefully trying to prevent another Longhorn PR disaster where the company promised the heavens and more for Longhorn, but in the end ditched Longhorn to make way for Vista. Chris Flores (Windows Client Communications Team) as well as Steven Sinofsky, has broken the silence a little bit to talk about Windows 7. In addition, it is believed Windows 7 will make its first official debut at the D6 All Things Digital conference today, during a keynote held by Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates.

Now, this is a surprise. All those features that were cut and cut and cut are going into Windows 7.

I know that some people are interested in backward compatibility, as their developer is still creating DOS-mode applications. (I wouldn't doubt they're still 8086 real mode, also.)

It would be nice if Microsoft finally did something good, as they're not quite as in control as they were after Win95 became entrenched. If not, the future should be quite interesting without their dominance or arrogance but I don't want any other operating system dominant, either.
