Windows "Over the weekend, I put Windows 7 build 7000 on my desktop and Windows 7 build 7057 on my laptop, and went through trying to spot as many changes between the two as I could. Although I go deeper than I did with build 7048, this is still not a comprehensive list. There is almost three months difference between the two builds: the beta was compiled on December 12, 2008, at 2:00pm and the leaked build 7057 was compiled on March 5, 2009, at 8:00pm, so there's a lot of work to cover. This post is about tracking every noticeable visual change; although I do mention some fixes here and there, I'm mainly focusing on tweaks that are "tangible" as opposed to the thousands of bugs that have been fixed."

If and when KDE 4 gets fully going I think you be surprised to see that many of those features that you were missing, are there and available on the *nix desktop. Sun Open Solaris guys have already demonstrated improvements to nautilus (albeit they could have done it with a slightly less heavy and sluggish file manager .. that or work on speeding nautilus, but thats a topic for another off topic discussion).

And when it comes to Libraries its definitely a step in the right direction. What I was expecting to see though was a reimplementation of the "Union Directory" concept that plan 9 has and that Microsoft kinda has in the "All Users\Desktop" folder behavior. But its a start down the right path.

Back on topic though .. appearance looks like the framework has pretty much been established and they are leaving it up to the themers to do their thing.
