    So this is Microsoft's new Windows OS, called Windows 7.

    There's a ton of information about Windows 7 in this link above, it's actually looking pretty damn awesome. Vista users should at the very least consider upgrading to Windows 7, and XP users should probably start saving up now. IMO, Windows 7 is what Vista should have been like from the get go. Loads of new features and overall better performance compared to Vista.

    It looks a lot like Vista...I hope they have something cool in store so there'll be a reason to upgrade from Vista.

    That UI is probably still too early. If someone remembers, the Vista (Codename Longhorn) alphas were TOTALLY similiar to XP.

    We can expect some more UI changes in the future, other than the new taskbar (which btw, I don't like one bit... only icons? wtf) [​IMG]

    And I hope that the "better performances" will be in relation to XP and not Vista (which is a resource-hog) [​IMG]

    Yep... they flashed around this new kernel they were building "minwin" then did a u turn and decided they would just "Build on the vista kernel"
    they showed demos of it running on 25 meg of ram.... using only 40meg HD space....

    Well they did have a video running this OS perfectly on a netbook. That alone makes it leaps and bounds above Vista.

    Yeah, performance is supposedly way above. Don't really see the point in upgrading though, it's just like Microsoft saying "Here, you paid for Vista, now you can pay again to get what it should've been."
    Honestly, most of these changes could easily be done over simple updates to Vista. I don't expect to pay for something that adds little to nothing.
    Besides, all anyone ever cares about is the UI, why!? And that taskbar sucks, I hate it, bring back the old one.

    Why not just improve vista rather than making a new os?

    c the thing is, i thought it was "spelt" as well. but according to spell check, it's wrong. i thought i was just confused (given how early it is in the morning)
