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.

Unfortunately Windows 7 looks like Windows Vista, uses the same Windows Explorer UI (Windows XP Explorer is far more easier on the eyes) and of course no "classic" UI which IMO was perfect in Windows 2000 Professional. Its all downhill from here folks. Its a case of Microsoft trying to hard and delivering a crap GUI that causes eye problems due to excessive GUI candy.

not to side with MS on this one, but your last bit about the gui causing eye problems due to excessive eye-candy - do you have any evidence of this?

I much prefer the newer eye-candy filled desktops (particularly kde4) to what we used to have. Sure, in some ways things may be a little slower but the eye candy gives me a richer and happier experience.

Those that dont like it can still easily turn it off ;)
