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 still looks sort of messy. Not too many differences from what they have right now. And icon-only taskbar? I bet some 10 people are going to find this useful. It's just not going to work - either you totally reinvent the whole UI paradigm or just stick to what has worked without problems for a long time. I just don't get it. Just look at how much criticism Apple has received for changing something as trivial as the menubar transparency.
