Windows So far, Microsoft has been very tight-lipped about Windows 7, carefully trying to prevent another Longhorn PR disaster where the company promised the heavens and more for Longhorn, but in the end ditched Longhorn to make way for Vista. Chris Flores (Windows Client Communications Team) as well as Steven Sinofsky, has broken the silence a little bit to talk about Windows 7. In addition, it is believed Windows 7 will make its first official debut at the D6 All Things Digital conference today, during a keynote held by Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates.

Think of it this way. According to Moore's law, in 3 years computers will be 4 times as fast. If they don't do much to make Windows 7 more 'resource sensitive' than Vista, it will appear quite zippy on those new machines.

You may want to read up on Moore's law, because your representation is wrong. It's about doubling transistor count every 2 years. And that tells you nothing about performance increases.
