Windows 7 Milestone 2 First Impressions

Today I installed the windows 7 milestone 2 for beta testing and took some screenshots of it. At first glance its very much faster and much responsive than Milestone 1. Please await a detailed review, for now here are some screenshots :) I will be posting my ideas and thoughts on Milestone 2 after few tests and some more usage.


Screenshots on page: http://dotnetwizard.net/vista-stuff/win ... pressions/

---Most likely fake---
The Feedback button on the desktop is missing the Icon and just has a generic WPF app one,
The Sidebar is the Vista sidebar not the Windows 7 one that had the buttons and black background removed
The search box isn't resizable like it was in the M1 build
And finally, the control panel uses the same width side panel as in SP1 instead of the narrow one that it was changed to (in order to give more room to the icons) in M1.

M1 was 6519
This "M2" is 6589

Sounds dodgy.

What are you talking about? There isn't a single mention of Vista SE anywhere, and if you have been reading the Official E7 blog you would know that Win7 is the next Version of Windows not some mythical Vista SE.

dotNETwizard is a fairly reputable source, much more so than that Chinese site that the first screenshots of M1 were posted on ("think next" or whatever it was)

Well considering the difference in M2 of Longhorn was 3663, and M3 was 3683 I would say that it sounds somewhat legitimate.

If anything this is more realistic, the longhorn builds you cite are only 20 apart, these Win 7 builds are 70 apart.
And we've only seen a few screenshots from a non-aero (probably VM) system running this build, so who knows what else has been added. Besides, major ui changes don't happen until much later in the build process (see the post-reset longhorn dev cycle)

fake, first of all windows 7 has the ability to resize the search and address bar, 2nd the sidebar is diff than the one in vista, it dsnt have the + sign and the movement btween pages, 3rd the taskbar is missing windows health center.

Thats possible, its also possible that the regressions you see are a result of merging the RTM Vista SP1 code into the Win 7 branch, if you remember, the M1 build was based off of an oldish beta of the Vista SP1 code. Also, you don't have a clear view of the system tray in any of the images, its obscured by the site watermark, so you don't know fore sure if the health center is there, or the way its displayed could have been changed. Or you might be right, it might be fake, we'll just have to wait for any further information.

unless thats a really private like Bill Gates use build, on the 2nd screen shoot i see the Vista Sidebar with the shadow thing and everything.
and no build tag .
no Testing bla bla or Eval bla bla

as for the login windows you know theres a program that allows you to use any type of Image to set as login background.

and if you are smart you can just use shell and base branding from M1 to Vista and it will say "Windows 7" SKU

i havnt see m2 builds or anything so i cant really say if no build tag can be possible (but i don't think so)

going back to Vista betas the only Vista build that didnt have the build tag was pre-rtm (the last leak before RTM) i dont remeber the build.


so umm well for me right now that is a total fake.
even i can make a better Windows fake using M1 files (like the taskbar on the 1st 7 demo) and more stuff... but well thats just me..

one more thing if you copy the mediacenter/feedback gadget to vista and the 2 dlls it will work

Also there doesn't seem to be a way to get a larger picture. If it were bigger, it would be easier to see through the watermark and check out the icons in the system tray.

Yeah, people like to fake this sort of thing all the time. To me, there is nothing that says it goes either way... that could just be because I didn't pay enough attention to M1.

The shell on the welcome screen looks soooooooooooooo nice :D

But i doubt its authenticity as on the desktop, where is has the users account (downloads, music,documents etc) it should have the windows seven m1 user icon shouldn't it?

Another indeed that this might be faked:

I will have to check my beta-testing agreement about that but I will let you know. Via your mail address.


If he had to sign a NDA or something else he is a "official" tester. Why does a tester get/install a build 5 months after the build date? (His screen says 080420-1634)

Makes no sense for me.....

What I don't understand is that they created a new Aurora boot screen but now the Aurora in the logon screen looks completely different.... :D

New features that should be there, aren't.

Plus the sidebar, nobody noticed that? Lol

How can you say, without a doubt, that these screenshot's are fake, simply because they do not display new features?

Because I know what should be there and it isn't.

It's because there's no desktop shortcut to C:\Users\User\Documents\Porn isn't it?

And how do you know what should be there, and what should not?
Just for the record, I am not saying that I believe these screenshot's are real, simply that we should not dismiss somthing without good cause
