Editorial Yesterday, a story made its rounds across the internet. It was picked up by many large news websites, and I'm sure it will be quoted by people until eternity. It was published by a large website, looked all fancy, it had multiple pages - it looked like it was really something. However, anyone with even the remotest bit of knowledge knows that the article was a collection of complete and utter bogus.

Vista was the code base, just like every OS release.

Vista was a major restructuring of the windows code. It is much more componentized now than it ever was. This allowed the Windows 7 guys to make some changes to how Vista worked by replacing a few chunks of code.

Windows 7 has some major interface changes as well, the biggest being that there is an asynchronous UI system, meaning that you can interact with the PC at your own pace and do not have to wait for an operation to complete to click the next widgit, etc.
