Windows Windows 7 is out and about. Microsoft has been unusually secretive about Vista's successor, but now that PDC is under way, they have unveiled the various enhancements to the user interface. Windows 7 might not have any significant under-the-hood changes (in fact, all your applications and devices will still work), but on the outside, Windows 7 represents the biggest change for the Windows user interface ever since Windows 95 came out.

There's going to be no hype about Windows 7 like there was for Vista then? ;-)

I was reading an interview with Sinofsky in a trade journal awhile back. He said that they tried to be very transparent about the Vista development process, and inadvertently built up alot of expectations. Instead of transparent, he said he would make windows 7 communication "opaque". This is why this is the first real information we have about the OS, and it comes with a CTP so this is only stuff they have done, not stuff they were planning but got dropped.
