Engineering Windows 7

If you are a "Windows enthusiast" or just interested in technology development, Microsoft has begun to open communications on the next Windows operating system, Windows 7, frequently referred to in blogs and the press as "Se7en".

The opening post is co-authored by Steven Sinofsky, Senior Vice President, Windows and Windows Live Engineering Group, and Jon DeVaan, Senior Vice President, Windows Core Operating System Division. Members of the engineering team are also expected to post, comment, and participate in the Engineering Windows 7 blog.

Surprisingly, comments are turned on for the blog., although there is not an RSS feed at this time. I hope that is added soon.* A pleasant surprise for international audiences is that the blog is also translated into several languages (Currently French, Chinese and Japanese). Hopefully additional translations will be available in the future.
*Update 15Aug08: The RSS feeds have been added. You can sign up for subsequent postings using either RSS or Atom 1.0. (Thanks Joe.)
In the meantime, enjoy the first posting in Engineering Windows 7 and the impressions of Ed Bott and Mary Jo Foley, linked below. After all, the blog is dedicated to all of us:
"The audience of enthusiasts, bloggers, and those that are the most passionate about Windows represent the folks we are dedicating this blog to."

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...

There is an RSS and Atom feed. I didn't look around for an icon on the page, but in Firefox, the link appears in the address bar to add the feeds.

So I see. Thanks, Joe. Your information is ahead of the information I received via another source about an hour ago.

It will be interesting to see how much time Steve and Jon will really have to devote to that blog.
