  • Yeah, I hope they squeeze all of the bugs out of Windows Live before they release it. I wont’ be buying Windows 7 until a couple of years after its release.

  • Looks like they’ll make Live Mesh an integral part of Windows 7… but these are real right, I’ve heard about fake Windows 7 pictures and videos.
    The new theme looks even more Aero, hope it’s not the only thing they got right ;D

  • Well, I’m still confused about whether these are fakes, or if they are just conceptual designs that were drawn up by Microsoft (with no concrete plans either way).  Regardless of if this screen is a fake or not, I think there should definitely be more integration with Windows 7 and Windows Live services—too much overlap with Vista (like mail applications, photo gallery, etc)

  • Hmm, not too bad and it is a nice change from Windows Vista, which does show us that Windows do like to try something new with a new version. They have some great ideas and nice little things on Windows 7.

  • I like this look of the Windows Media Center better than the current one.  I also tend to use a lot of Live.com services so this would really be a great addon for Windows 7.  I don’t see all the Live.com services but I hope it includes SkyDrive and other Live.com services like Virtual Earth.  These would be convenient to access right off of the desktop/preloaded with Windows.
