Windows I personally doubted that Windows 7 would make an actual appearance during the Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer joint interview up on stage at the D6 conference, but as it turns out, it has made an appearance. During an interview conducted by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher about Ballmer and Gates' past, present, and future, a short demo was given of Windows 7.

1) The "three floating icons" are just shortcuts to the demo apps on the desktop

2) I think the dock references are because of the look of the taskbar. Look at the 2nd screen shot (of the pciture sorting demo) in Engadget's article at

Note the position of the start orb (different from that of a double height taskbar in Vista), the extra transparency in the main taskbar as opposed to the start button and tray area, and the document icon look to the two icons next to the start menu.
