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.

No new kernel and it "builds on Vista".
**Excellent!!**

*Thank you*, Microsoft, for offering a nice juicy portion of market-share to the other operating-systems!
Sheesh, by the time Windows 7 comes out, even Haiku will probably be stable and really rocking along!

Good ol' MS - "If we give this Vista puppy a new paint job and weld some wings to the roof, no-one will notice that it's really an Edsel..." :-))
