Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
[Incommunicado no more!] Windows 7 details! No new kernel, video of multi-touch, etc
Okay, so Steve Sinofsky went all "No more flashy codenames!" on us and has in some ways changed how Windows is being developed so what we have is Windows 7 of which next to nothing was known but now, the D6 conference is on and it's confirmed that MS will have Gates and Ballmer on stage demonstrating some of the new GUI and other things.
The D6 conference is on in, well, I think it's on now or just happened but on the official Vista blog and elsewhere some small details about Windows 7 have appeared.
Overall, not a hell of a lot shown but at least it's something and it confirms things like multi-touch coming to Windows and shows the MinWin kernel rumour to be false. Also, W7 will still have 32 and 64 bit versions but I predict 64 bit being the most popular by far considering all the big companies now shipping 64 bit Vista on some of their machines to consumer and that W7 will be out in ~ 2 years..
Oh, and there will be public betas like there was for Vista and system requirements are more or less going to be the same as Vista. So, I can guarantee the performance and driver compatibility problems (Which were incredibly overblown anyway) will not be the slightest problem at all.
