In preparation for the D Conference, an annual event hosted by the Wall Street Journal, Microsoft has revealed some new information about the operating system through its bloggers, as well as the first official video demoing Windows 7.

The video covers Windows 7′s Multitouch capabilities in various applications; with Multitouch the touch-screen is capable of recognizing multiple, simultaneous touches, similar to Microsoft Surface but on a smaller scale. The first laptop to be shown featuring this technology is demoed in the video and will also be shown by Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer during the conference.

Chris Flores, director of Windows Client Communications, blogged about the upcoming operating system’s kernel. Contrary to rumors, Chris says, Windows 7 will not be using a new kernel. Instead the Windows Vista kernel will be refined and reused. One of the major design goals is for the kernel not to become bloated but rather “run on the recommended hardware we specified for Windows Vista and that the applications and devices that work with Windows Vista will be compatible with Windows,” wrote Chris.

Chris also confirmed that Windows 7 is on track and expected to be released in approximately three years from the general availability of Windows Vista. He also added that beta releases are upcoming.

“The codename for Blackcomb has changed to ‘Vienna’. This does not reflect a big change for us; we have used city code names in the past,” a Microsoft spokesperson said in a statement. “These code names are derived from cities/locations in the world known for great ‘vistas’. The kinds of places we all want to see, experience and that capture the imagination. Vienna fits with this concept.”
