Windows "Windows 7 might be a massive commercial success and an undeniably rock solid piece of software, but Microsoft is apparently unwilling to rest on those soft and cozy laurels. Asked about the riskiest product bet the Redmond crew is currently developing, its fearless leader Steve Ballmer took no time in answering 'the next release of Windows'." Also of note in this same video interview thing: Ballmer states that Silverlight is now pretty much strictly a client, non-cross platform thing, while explicitly stating that when it comes to doing something universal, "the world's gone HTML5".

Maybe I'm just a cheapskate - but My old Soundblaster that even worked in Haiku wouldn't work in Windows 7 Vista drivers don't work, (I eventually found a funny opensource driver that kind of worked.) I've stuck in about three different (admittedly old) wifi cards and had problems with drivers. It seems the Windows 7 is OK with drivers as long as the hardware is new.
