    I like the looks of it with the big icon's. It's an obvious attempt at making a better Vista but I can't help but to think that many of these improvments could have been done to Vista with updates. Lets hope they have improved the core architecture as well.

    I wonder if new drivers will be needed for all hardware or if the Vista ones will work. This would greatly improve it's acceptance in the mainstream community.

    I think the beta testing needs to be done on more computers and I wouldn't mind being one of them. New Op systems are so fun to play with. Would be fun putting it on a partition or it's own HDD and checking it out.

    Windows 7 will be using the same driver architecture so all Vista supported drivers and programs will be compatible
