Whats the "lighthouse" icon next to the LAN icon in the notification area?
I think part of the reason for going for a brand new OS name rather than merely a point upgrade is becuase of the seriously bad press vista had. It's hard to imagine how Vista's first six months could have been any worse. Even now despite a lot of the positive noises a lot of mud has stuck, and Windows 7 through appropriate marketing is a chance for M$ to undo some of the damage. All they have to do now is think carefully about upgrade pricing and not let the release date slip too much.
I think it'll be a winner.....it's just a question of when business and education will be ready and willing to embrace it. Windows 7 business SP1 perhaps ?
I would have to agree with this, Windows 7 is essentially a polished Vista with some added features and the bonus of having had time for mature drivers to be released.I think part of the reason for going for a brand new OS name rather than merely a point upgrade is becuase of the seriously bad press vista had.
Problem is... if it looks like Vista, feels like Vista then MS are gonna have a hard time persuading people to shell out more £££. They need to change that UI a bit to fix the stuff people don't like in Vista now and make it stand out as a new product rather than a rather pricey service pack

classic start menu back yet?
I need to ask..
WHY are people so keen on the classic SM?
My LM prefers it..
I find it a pain now - prob cos I'm used to the XP/Vista ones...
I liked the XP one, don't like the Vista one though, it needs to expand out it's a nightmare being restricted to that little square
