Windows APCMag sums up the information we already have on Windows 7. "We're still in the long dark before 7's dawn, but the earliest signs are encouraging: a new streamlined kernel, an inbuilt VM for running old software, a revised and simplified UI... There's every chance that Microsoft intends Windows 7 to rise from the ashes of Vista and be what Mac OS X was for Apple."

Now if they could just release some of all that awesome innovative software they keep talking about!

I expect nothing more than Vista again next time.. another lame duck, with all promised features pulled last minute! and to rave reviews for being twice as big and twice as slow as the last fiasco!

WinFS? Avalon? Magic Platform-stability by removing 3rd party drivers from the kernel?

All those OSX-killer features that were promised (to stop people turning to Apple) then were delayed, then cancelled, or just folded into Aero.
