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.

Why all the huge borders and wasted space?

People complain that KDE4 has too large of borders around everything ... and yet think this looks good? The borders around windows and in-window separators are at least 3 sizes too big.

And what's with the Paint ribbon? Am I the only one who finds it to be horribly cluttered, messy, with too much wasted space everywhere?

Yes, the graphics look pretty. But why is everything so big?
