A good article in Wired about Windows 7… surprisingly positive (not that Win7 is undeserving ;-). Some of my favorite quotes…

Microsoft delivers a slickly designed, vastly improved OS that will warp you to the world of today. This upgrade is big, and it’s hugely recommended for Microsoft users.

Everything from the typography to the icons, and from the toolbar to the windows, has been refined with some extra detail, polish and shadows. Finally, Microsoft creates a clean, modern look that competes with Apple’s finely designed Mac OS X Leopard.

It is frustrating however to see comments like this…

Windows Media Center gets a utilitarian makeover that looks a tad like Apple’s Front Row (and we’re not complaining).

Uh, Media Center has had that same basic UI since the first version XP Media Center Edition. If anyone should get implicated for copying, it’s Front Row.
