One of the star attraction of this year's Professional Developers Conference (PDC 2008) was Windows 7, Microsoft's much talked about next generation OS which is going to replace not-so-good Vista.
Is this going to be a major release from the software giant or just an improved Windows Vista?
Not really, if you want Microsoft executives to be believed. They did an impressive demo early this week listing all the new and improved features that comes with the new OS, which they plan to launch by 2010.
I have some screenshots here.

The User Interface looks better than the Vista. There is a big taskbar where users can drag-and-drop various application icons for one click launch. So no quick launch functionality anymore.
The Windows Sidebar Gadgets are replaced with Desktop Gadgets, meaning users can place their Gadgets any where on the desktop, not just in the sidebar.
Windows 7 have improved Wi-Fi networking features, which will light up a wireless icon when a wi-fi is available and users are just one click away from their favorite wi-fi network.
These are some of the features that are coming with Windows 7. If you are interested and wants to read more about Windows 7, check these following links.
