Via Sarah in Tampa I’ve seen my first screen shots of Windows 7 in action.
The best way to describe the images is that “it’s all in the details”, as they say.
These images are exactly what I hoped Windows 7 would be – simple and elegant. I wasn’t looking for “innovative” (that term has been used so much it’s completely lost its meaning when applied to OSes these days). I wasn’t looking for “wow”. I wasn’t looking for “cool”. What I was looking for is something usable, streamlined and functional.

This is obviously not a large departure from Windows Vista, but Microsoft is getting on the right track with this – and it shows in the interface.
