Windows I personally doubted that Windows 7 would make an actual appearance during the Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer joint interview up on stage at the D6 conference, but as it turns out, it has made an appearance. During an interview conducted by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher about Ballmer and Gates' past, present, and future, a short demo was given of Windows 7.

don't copy the dock, copy the speed

I don't know what to say. After Vista, Aero, the problems of half-baked products, too much dependencies, slow bloatful computing eating too much computing resources, they just continue this evil path by introducing even more bload, resource hogging, useless, unproven user interface features. It will be even worse than Vista.

Yes, the NT kernel is very good, yes, I like NTFS, but everything else should get a serious overhaul. I believe Windows has a good foundation. But the userland applications have too many interdependencies, are too bloated, and many of us just want a fast, responsive computer and not necessarily a bling bling computer. Fast, reliable and responsive: they should learn THAT from OS X, and not just the dock.
