We all read the news that Windows 7 is expected in late 2009 and that first milestone releases are send out to partners for testing purposes. Microsoft is very secretive about features and layout of the Windows Vista successor and does not publish any information regarding the new operating system.
Since the milestone 1 release has been out two forum posts with information have emerged. One was deleted after a short period of time but the cached version remains. The tester was not really happy with Windows 7 and expressed those feelings explicitly.
The second appearance was on a Chinese forum
were screenshots of Windows 7 were posted. Until now no one was able to verify this images but they could be legit after all. They do look terribly like Windows Vista which is understandable for such an early build. Let us all hope and prey that Microsoft will not concentrate on more eye candy in Windows 7.
