Windows Even though the Windows 7 beta had been available on piracy networks for a while now, it still hadn't been officially released. During his pre-show keynote at CES, Steve Ballmer officially launched the Windows 7 beta onto the world via TechNet, MSDN, and Connect. It will become available to the general public this Friday.

I think the main problem people have with Microsoft copying KDE and Gnome is that Linux has low marketshare and "normal" people think that Microsoft invented these new things.

When they come to Linux, they say "Oh, it's just like Windows 7!" We geeks know it is not like that, but "normal" people don't.

So it has something to do with fairness.
