I've seen some of microsoft's pictures of 7, and it looks exactly the same. The GUI interface doesn't seem to have changed... but that was a while back, I'll be anxious to hear about the beta.

The Taskbar has changed. And they have changed some things "under the hood" - Also, there is going to be a netbook edition.

Cool. I knew there would be some major software changes to make it more versatile and reliable, glad they are changing some GUI stuff to make it at least a little bit different.
