Windows Amidst all the WikiLeaks hoopla, there's also actual regular news going on. Windows 7 is barely out the door, and we're already dealing with Windows 8, which is indeed being worked on but will not arrive for at least two years. There's some rumours from an Italian website which state that the 64bit version of Windows 8 will have a completely new interface called Wind. Right.

I agree, they obviously done a hell of a lot of user testing in Windows 7 and a lot of the features they added were stuff that was there in either XP or Vista however they were improved over time.

e.g. Vertical tiling existed in XP and Vista and I use it a lot (SQL Server Management Studio Next to Visual Studio or the T-SQL docs). The Aero Snap (or whatever it is called) just makes it easier to tile two windows.

Also Windows grouping was done since XP, however it was rubbish until they had fixed it in 7, can't remember what it was like in Vista tbh, but I remember there being the live window priview being there.
