Well, IMO even if Windows 7 is just a vista that plays nice in the sandbox it'd be great to see a new OS that works out of the box on launch day.

I'm sure M$ is going out of their way to avoid the great majority of issues they had with the lauch of Vista not the least of which will be giving manufacturers a stable pre-release to write proper drivers for.

I'm not expecting miracles, but suspect it'll be the Vista folks were looking for at the original launch and that it'll be accepted (grudgingly of course... :) ) by those of us who refused to adopt Vista.
