This build exists, there are a few screenshots over at Neowin. There is word going around that this has already leaked.

Source: http://www.neowin.net/news/live/08/10/2 ... ndows-7-ui

"During the Windows 7 reviewers workshop on Sunday Linda Averett demonstrated the user interface enhancements introduced with Windows 7. Keeping with the trend, Averett described herself as a PC, wearing a red top matching her fall coloured desktop with orange and red aero glass tones.

The session was an overview of some new features demonstrated on Windows 7 build 6933.winmain.081020-1842. Unfortunately the build that will be handed out to PDC attendees will not feature most of the enhancements I am about to detail.

First up was the new Windows 7 desktop. The new desktop includes a thicker taskbar, improved system tray and no sidebar. The orb on the start menu also glistens after hover over."

Why it is that the build tag says winmain? I think it should say lab06 because of what I quoted...

I don't read every single post. I don't like most of them so I don't bother trying to find ones that are worth reading, I didn't see yours. Unless you're talking about what you quoted in that post? I was just quoting Neowin, hence the quotes around the text.

Lab06 no longer exists anyway. The traditional labs were culled at the Vista Reset.

It is winmain. Here you go:

Also, found this list of features supposedly in 6933 that aren't in the PDC build on JoeJoe. I'm not sure how accurate this is, I thought ribbon was part of Wordpad and Paint in the PDC build.

Quote:
In the keynote, just under 30 minutes into the keynote Windows 7 build 6933.winmain.081020-1842 was unleashed from the Microsoft labs. Although this is not the build that PDC attendees will get and many of the features demoed here are not included in the build. I am sure if you were to dig in the build you could find a way of activating the removed features.

Some of the improved/new features:

* UAC is more controllable
* Libraries
* Complete Interface
* Task Tray
* Start Bar
* Start Menu
* Sticky notes built into start menu
* Improved options for themes
* Direct X extended to 2d, animation, and fine looking text
* Ribbon Implemented in Wordpad
* Ribbon in paint
* Individual management for "Home" and "Public Networks"
* Introduction of Homegroups
* USB Bitlocker
* Native VHD mounting via disk management MSC
* Latest Windows Media Player
* Windows Key + P = Presenter UI
* Improved User account settings
* Add Fonts has been removed
* Touch has been implemented (Demoded By HP)

Oh snap!

If my current hardware can run Vista flawlessly, then it should have no problem running Windows 7? Correct?

From what I've read Windows 7 should run better than Vista on the same hardware. Of course that doesn't really mean anything at this point. :P

Why does many people still think every goodies is in lab06?
Only pre-alpha longhorn builds had lab06, I don't even think XP does. But it did have lab01.

the good lab is the ux lab, which never be leak or the employee will be in deep (censored).

It comes in both x86 and 64-bit. The final version of Windows 7 will also.

so we're getting 6801 and ms is past 6935

It's not really possible to compile 135 builds in 2 weeks, therefore it problary means the branched out and created a special PDC build just for attendees and jump the number to 69xx.
Or they have been loving the attendees this year that they spent 100 days recompling the same build that thebuild number remain the same.

I like it. I'm more hyped for than this than I was for Vista.

Hopefully it leaks within the next two weeks. Would make an excellent early Christmas present.

Yes, I know. Actually I have nothing against the guy, unlike a lot of people.

Man, I wish I'd went to PDC. WinHEC is a little out of my area but PDC would be perfect. Looks well worth the price for attendence judging from all the BOF sessions and presentations. Maybe next time. :)

I'm not that rich to spend 3K in a week.
What do they get that's so worth the price? The hdd and pre release software is not worth 3K.
You got to watch the presentations from day to night.

You talk the talk, but can you walk the walk? It's one thing to be all high and mighty claiming you can outdo someone but it's an entirely different thing actually doing it. Being a journalist is way trickier than it looks, I used to be the editor of a magazine with about 60K readers and I'm not sure even I could do what PT is doing.

And yes, he does have a MacBook but according to him he mostly runs Windows on it. I can totally see that, the MacBooks are very sexy and I have an MBP myself running WinServer 2008.

i hope not though, 2 hours gives you little time to really test it...
