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".

It seems the Windows 7 is OK with drivers as long as the hardware is new.

Hmm, I have a few somewhat old devices working fine, but yeah, I guess the older the device is the less of a chance it'll download drivers for it. That's actually a plus for Linux, though: even hardware from the freaking stone age has big chances of working fine, not that even very recent hardware has much issues either.
