Looks like evidence they won't be starting from scratch like they really need to.

Yeah - 20 years of baggage is really starting to show. At some point they need to completely nix backwards compatibility and make a new, modern OS from the ground up. It will be painful, many corporations rely on code that was developed in the windows 95 days, but it has to happen sometime and it gets more painful with each release. Apple did just that with the move to OSX, and it was a great decision.

And for all of you holding out for revolutionary developments down the line for Windows 7 - not gonna happen. I'll dig around for the quote, but MS peeps have stated that 7 will be more of an evolutionary release than XP->Vista was. They won't be introducing much in the way of new features, but will "solidify the foundation laid by vista" or some such bureaucrat-speak

**EDIT**
Here ya go

Recent revelations from Microsoft have suggested that Windows 7 will be far more evolutionary than its radical predecessor; this was confirmed by last night's demonstration. [...]

Windows 7 is shaping up to be a far-less-ambitious release than Vista. Although the Vista plans were watered down from the Longhorn ideals, it nevertheless saw significant under-the-hood development, with the most significant part of this being an all-new graphics subsystem. These changes were very disruptive as they required all-new drivers for video, sound, and other core functionality, and this has contributed significantly to Vista's reputation for poor compatibility when compared with its predecessor. This might not be such a problem were it for the fact that Vista fails to make any significant use of these new features. Plenty of pain—no real gain. To remedy this, Windows 7 is being pushed as a release that will consolidate on the ground-work laid by Vista. Windows 7 will not introduce any radical overhaul of core operating system subsystems; instead, it will leverage the new features introduced as part of the Vista release.
