BTW, Windows 7 release candidate now available

Posted by Sharon Chan

taskbar_peek_web.jpg A second wave of layoffs at Microsoft was announced today, including 1,200 cuts locally, Cinco de Mayo and...oh yeah...the Windows 7 release candidate is available publicly.

The release candidate is the final testing version of the software before Microsoft ships it to computer makers to install on new PCs for sale.

To the right you can check out the new task bar and the icon-free desktop, except for the recycling bin. As you roll your mouse over the task bar at the bottom, you get a sneak preview of what's open in each application.
