Windows 7 Makes Pre-Release Debut

At this week's PDC, Microsoft showed off Windows 7 and handed out pre-release code to thousands of curious developers.

We'll learn a lot more as testers put the code through its paces. For now, we know a few things -- namely, that Microsoft has improved the taskbar and enhanced its touchscreen abilities. Microsoft is also trying to make it easier to network machines in the home.

So far, I haven't seen any show-stopping new features. Then again, that's the last thing it needs; what Window 7 really needs is stability and compatibility. And a dash of performance wouldn't hurt, either!
