Good job!
Though, I still think it looks too Vistaish!

Very fresh ideas SaT, good work! I would love to see logos / custom fonts used in the taskbar; it looks really cool. Also, I like the toast/notification balloon implementation, it looks like you've based them on the Win7M1 screenshots, but they look genuine.

This work is amazing, either you're a visionary, or you have a lot of persiverance and free time - either way, they're probably the most contingent and appealing Windows 7 fakes I've seen.

Yeah, somebody on Wikipedia also mentioned those as well in the discussion about screenshots.

I love the wallpaper, but to me, it looks to Vistaish, as Chicago said.

The text on the window border would be unreadable on white backgrounds. I like what you did with the taskbar and the notification. In fact, I think the notification pop-up is something I think will appear in Windows 7.

Looks nice. Not sure how the Flip3D thing would work, though

I personally hope Windows 7 to be a lightweight and modular system, where a screensaver or a window-flipping effect is not considered a part of the operating system, but a module I can disable or even remove completely. MiniWin seems to be something with that in mind. Well it is also a possibility, that Win7 will be a highly modular system, with the parts connected throuth DRM, and you wont own but rent your opsys from MS, and pay monthly for that window-flipping module. (I see the era of Linux is on the corner )

Pay a monthly fee for a module for Windows? That would be a horrible idea in my opinion, and would only push consumers away to other alternatives, such as Linux, or even towards Apple.

I don't even think Linux is going towards the way of paying for modules. It's been open source for this long, I highly doubt it will change anytime soon, and if someone does make a pay module for Linux, someone will just make a free version with more/better options.

I know my english is horrible, but I newer said Linux will have pay-modules. I only said, that the massive DRM technology MS is integrating in Windows, and the modular concept of MiniWin may insist, that the next Windows, or the one after it will be made of a free kernel, and pay-modules. Its not just a wild guess, MS has a patent with the same idea. I think they call it SaaS (Software as a Service, means you not own the program, you rent it as a service). Well, even with a free kernel, I guess open-source modules will become avaible for MiniWin as well, Linux is also but a bare kernel.

Oh. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

What the patent reads to me is that it allows stuff like drivers to hook into the kernel while denying stuff that aren't authorized to hook into the kernel the ability to install. I believe Vista already has something like this implimented with drivers and even Anti-Viruses that require the need to hook into the kernel.

If MS charges for these modules, it will be a good way to alienate business and even the average consumer.

And these modules that would hook into the kernel would be a lot larger things than the flip thing, but more along the lines of DWM, added hardware support (like EFI), and other bigger things that take place under the hood.

I certenly do, sir! I only miss the kernel now, witch is a vmlinuz on my system just kidding.
Ofcourse the flipping thing was just an example, Im talking about filesystem support, GUI (like aero vs progman.exe), or even video codecs, 3d support, etc. I personally think, that its not an alien idea (just a BigBrother maniac idea), you'll has to pay only for what you use, and it will probably make Windows a lot cheaper. Like a company, holding 500 licenses, and only using the system to run office and firefox wont have to pay for DirectX and Aero and stuff. Also if you buy an opsys, you may only use for a year or two it is natural to be cheaper than an opsys, youll use for 3-4 years. I think things will go like iTunes Store + apt, 25 cent for DirectX a month, adds 3$ a year, not a heavy price, even with 10-20 modules it may be cheaper for a 2-3 years, than buying the entire thing. Also it may make things harder for the users of pirate versions, thats why I think it is likely to happen. OK, Im a pirate user as well, for I wont pay the price of my system for the opsys, but I may reconsider for a 10$/year price.

Looks good.

But 1 advice, put an watermark across with (Not real Windows "7", just my own made screenshot) so that people don't post, posts or articles with the FAKE Windows 7 screenshots.
I really hate people who post posts or articles with Fake screens or concept screens that aren't real.
