Hey Roger,

Information about Windows 97 is available at winmag.com. It will probably be released mid year, with betas released sporatically starting in February. Many of the improvements are currently available via Microsoft's web site. Get the Powertools file. The 97 version of Windows will probably just be like Office 97, with most of the improvements involving the Internet and better collaboration features. I see the only real advantage of Win 97 is if the consumer has a dedicated web connection, otherwise you will probably have to leave the computer on hogging up bandwith and phone bills, if you don't have unlimited access. This could potentially cause a huge bandwith problem, even worse than we currently have, who knows, we will have to wait and see what companies like Microsoft and Cisco do to relieve the bandwith problem.
