Windows 7 in the Microsoft pipelineMikey 2 comments
Even though Vista still has more bugs than a farmer's windshield, Microsoft are not only talking about the next version of Windows but have already given a sneak peak.
Code named 'Windows 7' (zero points for originality), the version demoed was essentially a stripped down bare bones OS. It was demoed in Virtual PC which gave an indication of the resources being used. It is quite dainty for Windows with a mere 25mb of disk space used (compared to about 14,000mb for a full Vista installation) and using only 40mb or RAM (compared to as-much-as-you-can-get-your-paws-on for Vista).
ArsTechnica have the full write up. You can download a WMV video of the demo, which weighs in at 143mb.
