    Microsoft impressed many by releasing the evaluation version Windows 7 Release Candidate ahead of the formal launch of its Windows 7 line of client operating systems. Polish website CentrumXP.pl caught early glimpses of what the jewel-cases of the some of the variants of Windows 7 could look like, along those of the Anytime Upgrade packs that let users promote their Windows 7 variant to a higher variant. The case design resembles that of Windows Vista, along with variants retaining the box color scheme from those of their predecessors. The Windows logo looks frosty-white, and gets some of the motifs from the default user login background Windows 7 RC sports.

    They're well on their way to a very successful OS release that will rid them of the vista stigma. I'm thinking Snow Lepoard will be coming out around the same time. Nice boxes though.

    Those are far better than Vista: simple and elegant, not graphics artist overkill.

    I'm quite sure we are going to see this OS drop a LOT sooner than we are being told.

    nVidia's frantic driver testing? All of the "Leaked" betas?

    Heck even Winrar has a Win7 beta in final stages...

    And now box shots? ... Do the math...

    At the very least, Home and Pro. Pro has everything, Home obviously does not.

    if you got vista you got 95% 7, vista SP2 64-bit performance is just as good as 7 64-bit atm ;)

    Your imagination, or hopeful speculation. I believe the plan has always been to follow Vista's lead in regard for versions.
