Windows The new OS includes major new user interface updates, and promises to work much better with third-party hardware and software. Can the latest version of the OS wash away the sour taste of Vista? Here's a detailed report and a slideshow of Windows 7 screenshots.

It's refinement.

Mac users were clamouring for refinement every bit as much as new features. One big hoped for, was the unification of the various themes, and a new finder-- which Leopard mostly delivered.

Windows 7 looks a lot less cluttered so far, and they've really taken to odds the insane number of extra clicks it takes to do anything in Vista. Connecting to a wireless network is a small adventure in of itself - so this kind of refinement (a wireless picker) is one thing in a list of deal-clinchers.

Everybody's got their peeves with Windows - it's refinement, not features, that'll go toward addressing those peeves.
