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.
