I keep reading about how Microsoft is freezing out OEMs from information about Windows 7. But today, Ina Fried, who is hands down the best Microsoft beat reporter on the planet, says that is not true:

Microsoft has said that it is engaging much earlier and deeper with computer makers as part of the Windows 7 design process. From what I’ve heard from PC manufacturers, this has been true so far. "It’s like night and day," one PC company executive told me.

Looks like the people who are telling other reporters that they aren’t getting access are being frozen out because, uh, they’re the kind of people who talk to reporters about their early access.

As time goes by, I continue to be impressed with how tightly Sinofsky and Co. are keeping the news lid fastened. In the 21st Century, that’s a major accomplishment.
