Windows Even though the Windows 7 beta had been available on piracy networks for a while now, it still hadn't been officially released. During his pre-show keynote at CES, Steve Ballmer officially launched the Windows 7 beta onto the world via TechNet, MSDN, and Connect. It will become available to the general public this Friday.

If its a good interface, then its a good interface. I'd rather have the largest seller of operating systems distributing a good interface than a bad one. I want free and fair competition of ideas and products.

I wouldn't want Microsoft to sue KDE, if KDE had borrowed an interface idea from windows. More than just the monopolistic arguments, I don't think things should be patentable.
