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.

Windows usability problems go as deep as the sewer that is the file system and the weirdly architected dependencies like changing Outlook preferences through a control panel.

While smaller UI improvements are appreciated, I can't help but feel like it's putting direction signs into a house of glass until they make truly major re-organizations to the underlying structure.
