looks cool... that new taskbar with the mini-preview that turns all the windows into glass looks like a really useful functionality. Taskbar itself looks kinda ugly though...

Here are many interesting improvements in Windows 7 over Vista such as faster booting, less hard disk access reading, less memory footprint opening as many as 50 windows, lower power consumption, longer battery life etc.

lol I like how you take news that was originally in English and happened in LA. Find the Japanese-translated story about it and then Google Translate it back to English.

Watch the vids and the related vids as well.

Install in compatibility mode. Has one for Vista RTM. Surround and 5.1 sound don't work though...

They should force 64bit only.

They should have done this with Vista.

Oh well Windows 8 i guess..
