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.

yeah, and people who paid like $600 bucks for o2k7 should have to pay another $30 to fix the asinine new menu system that everyone I know dislikes? I even asked the VP-level PA's and they are competent and responsible people who after months still dont like it.

It is not there to fix a problem, it is there to satisfy the fools who do not want to get more productive.
