Windows When Office 2007 came out with its new ribbon-based interface, a lot of people were up in arms because Microsoft deliberately left out a legacy switch - you couldn't go back to the old-fashioned Office user interface. Now that Windows 7 is getting a major UI overhaul, many wondered if Microsoft would build a legacy switch into its new operating system. Ars talked to Steven Sinofsky about this one, and got an answer. They also discussed the new jump list feature.

Regular Taskbar

hummm I don't know, the new taskbar looks like a "Dock" to me.

I switched to mac a year ago and love OS X but I think the dock has usability issues.

IMHO the regular taskbar (win,kde,gnome,xfce) it's a better UI approach to track current running processes.
