Hi ,

Earlier this month, Windows 7 Beta was announced at the International CES. At this point, many developers are curious to learn more about what this new operating system brings to the table. My team’s commitment is to provide you with the information and resources you’ll need to build applications on Windows 7. Going forward, we plan to blog extensively about Windows 7.
In the meantime, I would recommend checking out the Engineering Windows 7 blog and the Windows Client Developer Centre on MSDN for more information. Also, take some time to watch the great videos on Windows 7 that have been posted to Channel 9. Finally, join in the Canadian conversation on Twitter by tagging your tweets about Windows 7 with the hashtag #cdnwin7.

Cheers
