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.

Not trying to convince you or anything (i honestly don't care what OS other people use), but the lack of an up arrow was awkward to me for about a week.

Now I have a hard time using a file explorer that does not have a dropdown list of root nodes on the first arrow.
