I run into things like Windows customblinds and other things often where you can easily change splash screens or what is seen there. While you know better then count on any rumor mills one look at the video seen there is all it takes to spot the all too familiar Vista materials when you run Vista everyday. No wool over the eyes here!

Well right now there is 1 thing that the Rumor mill has correct. That the current builds of Windows 7 looks a lot like Vista. Cause it does. Just like the early builds of Codename Longhorn looked a lot like XP. Jsut the way the coding goes.

That wouldn't any great surprise in itself since you start off with something familiar and then redesign the overall appearance as you go along for the "new look" that will become tue finished product. It's just like the Vista themes are a newer look to those first seen with XP in that sense.

When looking at a site like youtube where anyone can upload just about anything that raises all the doubts there fast there however not knowing just who posts what. On one posting with two videos about Vista someone simply pointed a camcorder at the screen and moved around clicking on everything in a Vista stinks posting.

The video was simply too lame to be credible. Just like the one supposedly being Windows 7 you are still looking at amateur hour there. You're not seeing any of this from credible sources.
