    Well, I've found some screenshots of Windows 7 M1, courtesy of http://www.thinknext.net/archives/2124. No new interface yet, but it does have power shell.

    In the start menu, the new things are Power Shell and XPS Viewer EP.

    For now, that is. The GUI is still being developed. I think around M2 or M3 we might see the new interface.

    I would say that speed also has to do with it. I know quite a few people say that Vista sucks because it needs a moderately powered computer, rather than a basic computer.

    Graphically, yes. But there are some new things, such as PowerShell, which should be pretty interesting.

    to be honest people say you need a moderately well powered pc to run vista i went through all the beta stages and release candidates as well as the retail version. i managed with my copy of vista for 2 weeks and had enough of the crashing, not being able to get decent drivers and then we have all the background crap in vista that runs and when you disable it just end up getting pestered by guess again more crap. it is kinda irritating plus the fact my pc runs about 50% faster and my laptop seems twice as fast now im back on xp.

    I'm a bit suprised Windows Mail is still there, given the release of Windows Live Mail. It's seems like that would be a relatively very easy thing that they would have done already.

    I think that they might just remove Windows Mail, and then just put a link to download Windows Live Mail, so that they won't have any issues with Anti-trust.

    btw, I use Windows Live Mail, and it's pretty nice. :)

    Does Windows Live Mail actually require registering for any services? I have a Hotmail account, but I don't recall having to log in to get Windows Live Mail.

    Well, I don't think so. I think you can download Windows Live Mail from www.windowslive.com without registering, and you can use it without a Live Mail account.

    Yeah, it's because the major changes so far are internal, not external.

    This is what the early longhorn looked like: http://www.winsupersite.com/reviews/longhorn_alpha.asp Looks familiar? It's exactly the same with Windows 7. Some time during the betas, we will get a new UI. http://www.winsupersite.com/reviews/longhorn_5048.asp
