Look at Windows 7 new "Dock".


Recommended Posts

Check this video out. Looks like Microstupid is copying the Mac OS with a dock type task bar. I love Microcrap's originality. The "peak" feature is pretty nice though. http://lifehacker.com/5075076/new-windows-...re-look-awesome

 

From what I have seen so far Windows 7 is an improvement over Vista but nothing special. They sure seem to be fast tracking this OS which is an admission IMO that Microsoft knows Vista is a flop even if they don't publicly admit it.

It is still the same as the current taskbar, MS just got rid of the text.

'Pinning' a program to the taskbar just adds it to a slightly modified Quick Launch.

Also, the notification area is (finally) controllable.

 

 

No, I'm not a MS fanboy. I'm just tired of people bashing Vista/MS; Vista isn't that bad, and Win7 will be what Vista was meant to be.

In fact, as I type this I am exploring Win7 Pre-Beta on a 4 year old Dell Inspiron 1000 (Intel Celeron 2.2GHz, 512mb RAM).

That is the problem. After 7 years of development the new OS (Vista) should be a lot more than "isn't that bad". It is not an upgrade and requires some serious hardware and tweaking to get it as good as XP.

 

As for the new Task Bar it's ugly. It looks like XP's Task Bar if you double it's size which I don't do. The features are not bad though.
