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.

I agree with almost everything you said there kaiwai. I would point you to powershell though for a modern commandline, basically bash taken to the next level.

I also disagree with the whole ancient hardware thing. Developers are currently NOT writing multithreaded code, and we are getting more and more cores in our cpus as time goes on. As it stands now, quad cores are going to be a complete waste, since devs do not take advantage of parallel processing.

Developers should all be on quad core NUMA machines ;)
