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.

That is exactly why I don't use Windows. I like OS X because I forget I am using an particular OS and am instead working in a particular application. If you want a really cool looking interface, add a theme to Windows or Linux. The Mac has one interface that works properly and does the job with no flash except in areas where it is used tastefully for function like Expose or Dashboard. It is like people saying they think deign is unimportant because they see most designs don't assist the content. Proper design should enhance the function.

I'm talking about icon only in the taskbar. It's great for showing off but it hurts productivity

My workflow completely ignores the dock. I don't keep applications on it that aren't running and it's size the smallest possible with only a slight magnification setting.

I use Quicksilver to launch and end up using command-tab to switch between applications. I honestly am looking for a way of killing the Dock permanently.
