It's over, waiting for the full download. I just caught the last question, so was any of it about windows 7?

They will talk about cool "'new" effects in 7, most of which will be copied from Compiz but demand DirectX 11 GPU with 1+GB memory.

I'd rather MS didn't employ features like that at all. Compiz is just an annoyance after a while. Try moving Windows around in Ubuntu on a 15.4" laptop screen with "Snap to Edges" turned on, and god forbid you should try to adjust any of the settings.

Operating Systems should be functional. Leave Fancy features to application developers.

The snap to edges plugin should be disabled when the wobbly windows plugin is enabled. For some reason ubuntu will enable both when you apply full effects. But I can see what you mean, its not very well implemented.
