Windows We already know some of the directions Windows 7 will be exploring: a system-wide multitouch user interface framework, a focus on performance, all while building on top of the groundwork Windows Vista has laid out. While off-hand remarks have been made concerning the operating system's release date, it appears Microsoft now formalised the release date of Windows 7.

A good operating system should not require you to use the command line. Period.


That's no excuse for having a poor command line. Just because you are not required to use it doesn't mean it shouldn't be there or that it shouldn't be useful.

Look at Mac OS X. No "normal" user need never touch the command line, but for those who want to there is a fully featured bash shell with useful apple-specific functionality.
