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.

Well, there's some differences, mainly the original explorer windows are finally gone, and the classic start menu is gone, but the rest is there.

It still uses a start menu, just different. You can have window labels displayed on the task bar, and windows don't have to be grouped. Plus, you can always use the classic Windows 9x/NT window look, instead of Aero.

Icons on the desktop, etc etc.

I currently don't have convenient access to a windows install right now, so I can't check to see how much you can have the classic explorer windows, but the essential stuff is still there.
