    That looks interesting whether it's real or not, I personally like Vista a lot and if 7's even better that'd be awesome. I like some of the visual things they did in those shots.

    Hey Shadow, you can always turn those things off and just enjoy the benefits of a better OS as well. I thought the samething about XP when I went from '98 up to XP, I didn't want the "flashy" look just the business part. Now with Vista I enjoy the more flash they have and it flows well with the business end of it all.

    Wow looks very nice. Seems like the took the transparency a step further, making the whole Windows Transparent instead of just the top.:p

    Microsoft keeps the hardware industri running...thats for sure...and us poor customers with emty pockets....

    Theese things showing of...Mac and some Linux distributions already can that....and with much lesser hardware requierments......

    BUT....either way....the game developers are going to make games for Mac/linux or
    we have to run Vine for the rest of our days.....or just be rich and buy Vista or whatever they call it....

    And yes .... what a wonderfull day....;)

    I would like to point out that despite the screenshot saying Windows 7 Ultimate, they are for the mobile versions like Tablet's and that new Screen thingy (Surface I think it's called...)

    The desktop version at this point has no GUI.

    If those are real, then it looks like the circular interface mentioned a few years back is going to be true... and that the start menu is well on it's way to gettin replaced.

    My understanding of Windows 7 is that it is supposed to be trimmed down. One of the problems they have with Vista is it is too builky to run on tablet pc's and tiny eepc's, so other os's are starting to encroach on market share. MS need an OS that can be utilized in this market or it faces linux and others getting an incrwasing foothold.

    OOh adding crap all ready but i guess you can turn it off like you can on Vista \ XP.

    I really hope they do a real striped version of it as i'm thinking Vista again. They have a load of work in front of them thats for sure. As with vista i'll get it if it's free. Unless some REALLY good happens.

    It dosesn't matter to me how it looks, as long as I can gut it out, tweak it, and make it usable enough for my needs. What I'm concerned with, is how the O/S is built, and how efficient it will run on my machine. XP runs fine, after tweaking it. Vista runs fine, after tweaking it (yeah, it takes a little longer than XP to tweak), I'm sure Windows 7 will be the same.
