Windows 7 Will Kill Linux and Hurt Apple

Right now, Microsoft Windows 7 is in late Pre-Beta. Soon to be out in Public Beta on January 5th, 2009. I now have tested the latest Windows 7 Pre-Beta Build 6956. It is stable, fast and has great new features. Windows 7 is looking less like Windows Vista in almost each new build.

Microsoft Windows 7 New Features-
New MS Paint with Office 2007 Ribbon Interface
New WordPad with Office 2007 Ribbon Interface
SuperBar (new tasker)
Windows Action Center
New Windows Media Center
Return of the Windows Boot logo at startup
New Wallpapers
IE 8
Windows PowerShell V2 Build in
Bluetooh File Transfer
Touch-Scan Features
Location and Othere Sensors
New Icons
and lots more
to many to list
those are the main ones

Why it will Kill Linux-
Windows 7 is fast on low-end Netbooks. Which is what Linux is being shipped on. Cheap computers that won't run Vista.

Why it may hurt Apple-
Windows 7 has new Advanced Technology like Touch-Scan Features, and Location sensors. Windows 7 is also as fast as Mac OS X.
