Windows Yes, we're still on the subject of Windows 7's user interface overhaul. We know what's going to change, we know what it looks like, but there's one important question that has not really been given much stage time: why? At PDC, one session was dedicated to just that question. Speaking is Chaitanya Sareen [.wmv], part of the windows user interface team. He'll place the changes in Windows 7 into context, talk about Windows' user interface history, and he'll explain why certain changes were made. An interesting insight into the goals of the Windows 7 interface.

Given that I buy an OS if I want to or not I have held off purchasing Vista all because the folder view did not have an UP arrow and the address bar did not provide "\" as the separator in the default view (unless clicked on).

Silly? Probably... but why not provide for people as strange as me the option to revert to Windows 2000 classic interface?
