One aspect that is inherently associated with the evolution of the Windows platform is the redesigning of the operating system's graphical user interface. From Windows XP to Windows Vista, this evolution was marked through the introduction of Windows Aero. For the time being Windows Aero has survived into Windows 7 Milestone 1 Ultimate edition. But in the future, the graphical user interface of Windows 7 could go in the same direction of the UI of the Office 2007 System, namely the Fluent/Ribbon.

"So we're very pleased to see that, and we're pleased to see people taking this and building their applications. In fact, we in the next version of Windows will be using this fluent UI quite a bit across a number of applications. And so the Ribbon really got started with Office 2007, but we see it spreading to all the really neat client applications. It turns out it's the user interface that works very well for the pen and touch as well as being a better way of revealing application functionality," Gates promised.

I think interesting best describes this. I don't know if it'll be better or worse than Aero... for now, it sounds like it's just as good.

Remember guys Gates only confirmed that the apps in win7 will have the Fluent/Ribbon interface. Win7's interface is still not confirmed but rumors are that surface technology will be implemented!
