Windows We all know that Windows 7 is on its way, planned for release somewhere late 2009 or early 2010. We already know it will have a multitouch framework, no major kernel and/or driver framework changes, and a new taskbar people at Microsoft are not supposed to talk about right now. The firs two milestone releases didn't appear to be very exciting, but now there is - supposedly - a milestone 3 (build 6780) release, and there is a screenshot, and more information on UI changes. According to Microsoft blogger Stephen Chapman, the ribbon will make its way to Windows 7.

Ding ding ding! Vertical space is at a premium. Put a tabbed interface on the side, and leave me with a menu with full functionality. It's not hard MS.

I wonder if the user will be able to click and drag the 'ribbon' from top to the bottom or to either side? Microsoft's toolbars have had that capability for years.
