Unless you’ve been living under a rock under the Apple tree you would have heard that a little company in Redmond WA has been working on a new version of Windows dubbed Windows 7 (which is what it will actually be called for once!).
At PDC today, Microsoft finally unveiled the much-anticipated release of Windows 7 and handed out pre-beta bits to atendees (tagged 6801.winmain_win7m3.081020-1655). They demonstrated a newer build which was tagged 6933.winmain.081020-184 during PDC which unfortunately was not given out. Unfortunately I couldn’t go due to work constraints, but in case your in the same boat I’ve collected some of the best sources of info out there for you to browse through.
First and foremost, some pretty pictures of the glassy new desktop UI.
Some interesting articles out of the many out there that are recommended reading:
- PC Magazine‘s Inside Windows 7 Pre-Beta – Probably the first thing you should read.
- Extreme Tech‘s Why Windows 7 Will Suck Less Than Vista – Offers a comparison between Vista and 7
