Opinion: Windows 7 "could make using a PC meaningfully more pleasant"

As noted today on Twitter, a quick post before I head off to my next meeting.  An interesting post this week forwarded to me from technologizer.com on Windows7, from Harry McCracken, providing “a hands-on look at an upgrade that could turn out to be all the things that Vista never was”… “… the Windows 7…

You can now knock a couple of blogs off your reading list. No, they weren’t tossed – nor did the blogger go on permanent holiday as some are wont to do – but a couple of our Windows blogs were merged into the new Windows Team blog, with (as Brandon says)… "… sporting an all-new…
