Windows 7 Shout-Out

Maybe Steven Sinofsky and the Windows 7 group at Microsoft have mastered the fine art of lowering expectations. Or perhaps Windows Vista did the job for them. Whatever the case, it seems Windows 7 is poised for a warm welcome among IT and development professionals alike, when it ships (possibly) in 2009.

But we're impatient. We want to hear what you think of the next great Microsoft client OS right now. If you've worked with the Windows 7 pre-beta, send us an e-mail with your thoughts. And let us know if the new features and capabilities of the OS might make Windows 7 a more appealing dev target. E-mail me at [email protected].
