Somehow, I was thinking of Windows 7 as being far far away, but apparently it could be here in as little as six months. Now that details of what will ship under which SKU are starting to come out, I am dying to try and get the skinny from the Federated Identity team on whether Windows 7 users will get the old CardSpace bundled with .NET 3.5 sp1, or whether they will in fact get a bright shiny new CardSpace Geneva Selector!
As an aside, I hear that both fax services and full-image backup will be included in Windows 7 home edition — thank HEAVENS. Whatever dim bulb removed those features from most/all of the the many and oh-so-confusing array of home versions in Vista caused me a WORLD of grief, in my capacity as reluctant amateur PC support for my family & friends.
