Windows 7 Details To Leak Steadily

Microsoft is better at priming the pump than an old Oklahoma farmer. In this case, the company wants you to think of Microsoft when you think of next-generation operating systems -- and that means getting you excited about Windows 7, the follow-on to Vista.

To keep you all amped, Microsoft has a new Windows 7 blog. So far, there's only one post, this one explaining what the blog is all about.

Microsoft is very clear that it wants to control the message, rather than having us journalists do that job. It also promises to make it a two-way street, allowing IT to tell Microsoft what to put (and not put) in the new OS.

What should Microsoft do to make Windows 7 shine? Send your advice to [email protected].
