Windows Yes, we're still on the subject of Windows 7's user interface overhaul. We know what's going to change, we know what it looks like, but there's one important question that has not really been given much stage time: why? At PDC, one session was dedicated to just that question. Speaking is Chaitanya Sareen [.wmv], part of the windows user interface team. He'll place the changes in Windows 7 into context, talk about Windows' user interface history, and he'll explain why certain changes were made. An interesting insight into the goals of the Windows 7 interface.

Yeah, but when I hear them talking about bitmap icons (at the end of the talk) I loose all hope again ;)

SVG FTW!

Seconded. I want resolution independence. My 15.4" laptop has 1920x1200 pixels.

For SURE Microsoft will NOT use SVG.

Can't use anything which is standardized, can they?
