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.

Hmm, I can't help it but particularly round the taskbar and tray it looks more and more like KDE.


It seems the Microsoft folks decided to create a collage of KDE and OS X screenshots and said, ``Give me a little of that, some of this, much of those and half a dozen of both on this area...''

I couldn't agree more. The first thing I noticed when I look at the screenshots was that it looked like an uglified mix of KDE 3 & 4 with overdone graphics effects and lots of OS X copying thrown in. Come on, is that all you can do Microsoft?

PS. I must admit it is at least a bit better than Vista.

Cut them some slack. This is far from release stuff, and Microsoft tends to wait till near the end to integrate new artwork. If Windows 7 looks like those screenshots I'll eat my hat.
