I was determined to not write about Windows 7 today, because any analysis I wrote would get buried in all the other news. I was going to wait to deliver my "last word" sometime next week. But then a co-worker emailed me the photo above, clearly of Linus Torvalds at the software counter at Yodobashi, a Japanese consumer electronics store in Tokyo in front of a huge display of Windows 7 boxes, giving it the international sign of recognition: Thumbs Up. I HAD to post that.
Of course, if you happen to be Japanese, the custom is to make the "V" sign rather than a "Thumbs Up" when you are being photographed, but I won't criticize Linus for his trivial knowledge gap.
