A round up from around the web of all the Windows 7 news today

What a day this has been. Microsoft’s second day of the Professional Developers Conference started off with a bang. Not only did Ray Ozzie (Microsoft Chief Software Architect introduce Windows 7, but they gave a sweet demo of all its new features. Windows 7 promises to change all the wrong perceptions about the platform and give businesses, developers and consumers a rich, complete computing experience. One thing is for sure, I must get a Tablet PC, because the new interface is geared toward working with touch surfaces. Don’t worry, the traditional point and click approach is still there and even more powerful now. Anyway, I have aggregated a list of great content from around the web about Windows 7, here is a long list that should keep well occupied for hours.

Lets start off with ActiveWin’s 25 page review which I was happy to help author, in addition from other enthusiast web sites:
