- Beta is expected for early 2009 with a release in early 2010.
- Supports up to 256 CPUs (okay...)
- Faster, uses less RAM (apparently runs fine on labtop with a 1GHz CPU and 1GB of RAM)
- The annoying UAC is more customizable
- No more sidebar, gadgets can be anywhere on the screen
- Multi-touch
- GPU Acceleration
- Drastically Improved Networking
- Improved multi-monitor management
... and more -.^

They aren't going to change the way you navigate to use a computer. That would be ludicrous, everyone would have to re-learn basic computing essentials.
 
They are optimizing the internal core, and enhancing the user interface.
 
Finally the things that Vista should of came with.
 
Warm Regards,
Alex

its got a vista core, vista changed a bit the way you move around as far as how the local address bar looks and such and that is what I was referring to.

So when I order with Vista, I'm getting the 2008 version of Me. An operating system with problems that will be gone a year after I buy it.

Well I wouldn't say that.... As far as I'm concerned Vista is still gonna be used still for stuff like Direct X 11 and such...

Since another purpose of Windows 7 was to establish Direct X11.

At least from what I understand.  I could be wrong.

Oh speaking of which, any confirmation that Windows 7 sound architect would be different or improved?  That way stuff like Creative doesn't act all crippled anymore ahaha.

(Then again Asus' approach at software based DSP is still a breakthrough though.  So probably won't matter.)
