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.

It's not just the icons that make it more dock-like. There is only one icon per application instead of per instance. Then with the addition of jump lists that allow you to control some application features directly from the minimized window the new taskbar resembles a dock a lot more than it did before although ultimately it still is a taskbar.
