Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer gave a small Windows 7 preview at the Walt Mossberg's D6 conference.
The two Microsoft honchos demonstrated the multi-touchsupport of Windows 7. The video below shows the multi-touch feature in action on a Dellnotebook with N-trig DuoSense technology. I have now seen enough multi-touch from Microsoft just release it and get over it.
For me it would be much more interesting if Windows 7 will gives me responsive computing. I am sick of waiting for apps to boot, load and do stuff. I am sick of Outlook hanging my PC and slowing me down. I want an OS without bloated stuff and just streamlined execution power.
Windows 7 is supposed to come in 2010 now, since yesterday's interview with Steven Sinofsky.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
