We're likely on the final build of Windows 7, excluding service packs.

Most of the configuration stuff in Windows (Control Panel et al) is a jumbled mess. It only got worse in Vista. Hopefully they will sit down and give it some serious thought in the future because it is only going to continue to get worse.

When I have some free time I'm going to make a large thread about Window 7's control panel and tear into it... Start asking questions like "Why does this box exist?" "Why do these do the same thing?" "Why is this design style and this design style used here and here?" "Why aren't users given a control panel with only usable configuration boxes in?"

Windows 95 was at least consistent and everything visible was usable to the user...

Well yes but Windows 95 had an easier story, no back compat and absolutely no security.

Sounds like an interesting thread though....
