Windows The new OS includes major new user interface updates, and promises to work much better with third-party hardware and software. Can the latest version of the OS wash away the sour taste of Vista? Here's a detailed report and a slideshow of Windows 7 screenshots.

"Fortunately, you can look at these screenshots to see what won't be in Windows 7.


Dude, it's a pre-beta. They had to show the folks at the PDC something.

I know it's alpha quality software, but that's beside the point. They could have shown us something new instead of putting a new coat of paint on the old system. These updates are pointless, like for example, adding Jezzball to the games and new deck backgrounds to Solitaire would be.

Maybe the company is reluctant to make any promises after most of the features in Longorn were vaporized, but it seems like it would be better marketing to demonstrate substantial changes, even if they are still pre-beta.
