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.

Because at some point they have to stop providing the old UI. How far back would you have them provide? If Windows is to ever break free of its shackles and bloat then ms needs to, at some point, say no to providing legacy interfaces. It's not a full solution but it is a start.
