BUT then so does all the food you see in magazine ads. Of course those all turn out to be either plastic or glazed with something entirely unedible. I want to be optimistic about Windows 7 but it is difficult when I haven't even made the switch to Vista yet. XP was functionally a great upgrade from Windows 2000 and XP functionally still meets all my computing needs and all Vista would do for me is force me to buy a faster computer. I will admit that the UI demo below indeed looks nice but it's like judging a filet mignon from a photograph. I want to be able to dig into this OS and see how intuitive it is from a techie's perspective... well that won't likely happen for some time. In the meanwhile enjoy this flashy new taskbar.
