Windows Windows 7 is out and about. Microsoft has been unusually secretive about Vista's successor, but now that PDC is under way, they have unveiled the various enhancements to the user interface. Windows 7 might not have any significant under-the-hood changes (in fact, all your applications and devices will still work), but on the outside, Windows 7 represents the biggest change for the Windows user interface ever since Windows 95 came out.

It all looks and sounds good, but what kind of hardware will be required?


They say it requires the same hardware as Vista, which is totally plausible seeing nothing in Windows 7 so far seems to use any hardware tricks that Vista doesn't already support.

In fact, Sinofsky even said Windows 7 reduces the memory footprint. So who knows.
