Windows Now that Windows 7 is more or less finalised on the feature side of things, with the release candidate around the corner, I thought it would be interesting to look back upon what we thought Windows 7 would be - and what we actually hoped Windows 7 would be. So, I dove into our article and comment archive to see how many of our hopes, dreams, and predictions came true.

This lack of experience by way of using alternative means of UI design and implementation really show through in the lack of creativity and willingness to think outside the traditional Windows paradigms.

Agreed. I think this example speaks a lot about those who develop Windows' UI: why can't I drag & drop a file or folder in an open/save dialog and have the target of that dialog changed? OS X does it, GNOME does it AFAIK, even Haiku does it. Here's hoping that they will fix it in RC/RTM.
