Early Windows 7 Bits Set for Release

I've had a lot of questions about Windows 7 lately, such as whether it has a brand-new microkernel or is instead a rehashed version of Vista. Some of the questions will be answered late next month at Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference (PDC), where attendees will get a pre-beta version (didn't this used to be called an alpha?) on a handy USB drive.

My new question: How many folks will go to PDC just to get a free 160GB flash drive?

Meanwhile, the Engineering Windows 7 blog, which was dormant since its inception, is gaining serious steam. Check it out.
