Windows 7 News

Windows 7 is all over the news lately because of statements by Bill Gates, Steve Ballmer, and other Microsoft representatives.  The biggest news is that it will have native touch screen capabilities and compatible with existing touch screens.  Microsoft really wants to push that surface computing.  Windows 7 will be based on the Vista kernel.  Will the second time be the charm.  It all depends on the expectations and how Microsoft keeps those promises it makes.  It looks as if they are only showing the things they can confidently add into the operating system.  We'll see.  The articles in Computerworld, Information Week, and CNET are good summaries of what is known to date.
