Please read the forum rules.
What you have just done is called double posting, and there is a rule against it.

It reads kind of like a review of Windows 7 mashed together with a referendum on Windows Vista. T'was a good read, but like you said there wasn't really anything new there. Thanks, though.

I think somebody already brought up double-posting and I'm not a mod so I won't chew you out for it. If you are going to double post, though, at least say something original. If you wanted to respond to what I said you could've put it in the quote tags. Also, you could have completed your thoughts before hitting the submit button. If you don't communicate everything you want to in one post, there's always the handy edit button.

raj20078, Repeatedly double-posting like you have done twice today will result in a Ban. Consider this a warning.

Didn't notice. That was originally two posts, The quoted part was a separate post too, so he's just copying and pasting other peoples post.

I'm going to recommend his removal to Andy. This is just blatant spamming.

I knew he copied mine, I didn't notice that he copied yours. Is it too much to ask that he be suspended, if not banned?

I think this was brought up in another topic, but the version being distributed is 6801 plus a bugfix. The new build, 6933, is being demoed, but we won't get our grimy mitts on it until the open beta (excepting the possibility of an internal leak).

The new taskbar is in 6933. The taskbar's new features, as demoed in 6933, are not available in 6801.

I could be wrong on that last sentence.

Allright, and that was my point. When i've asked 'Which build are they showing?' i meant which build is in the review because on top of review it is written that it's 6801 but screenshots contain new taskbar...

That was the best review I've read on 7 so far.

Interesting stuff.
