Funny how Windows 7 page on Wiki is locked down tight.

No editing allowed.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_7

Yet, Snow leopard is open to editing.

Seems like the Redmond boys are either paranoid, or hypersensitive to anyone posting criticisms of their newly born wunderkinder.

Doesn't look like it is Redmond. As long as you log in you can edit it. Just too many idiots who run Windows that know enough to be dangerous.

Your right Saul.

Just logged in, but oddly the 'lock' symbol is still in place in the top right hand corner.

I think that the lock symbol stays no matter what.
