People, it's a Milestone. This is what Longhorn Milestone 1 looked like:

As you can see, it's barely different from XP. Windows 7 M1 is an extremely early build, and will most likely bear no resemblance to the final build. They work in small steps - it's not like in the very first build they are going to integrate all of the planned features. It's a work in progress.

Anywhere to find a download?
I know it sounds stupid, but I have Virtual PC 2007 and I love to test OS's

Any news, I'll be grateful

No,I read an early analysis of Windows 7 milestone 1 and it stated the UI looked like vista but the sidebar had been integrated into the taskbar and that some accessories such as notepad and paint used WPF now.These screenshots and the youtube video are both fake,it's already been proven.

This is just a firts step towards new version of Windows. The final version of Windows 7 won't even look like this. If someone remembers, Longhorn's first build also looked similar to Windows XP, even with blue taskbar and green start button.

Edit: The image of the Longhorn Milestone 1 posted by ShamusHand didn't load at the first instance. I've mirrored it here for the others.

These are the original screenshots. The ISO is already up on the torrents. The build version is 6.1 because the current Windows 7 build is using the most recent version of Vista kernel, but this will change in the future.

Say if I did get this, could I install it on Virtual PC without harming my Vista?

I don't actually think I will, but if I did ...

Suggestion: Keep away from all the alpha and beta versions. Only CTP, RC and RTM are worth installing.

Whats the point of posting this lame crud.

vista+sp1 is also version 6.1

so this is:
a. fake
b. useless m1 crap
c. if they do the same "job" like they did with Longhorn and/or Vista... why do you care, you loose anyway.

It would be better if Microsoft would start from Longhorn again :P


OH GOD, YES! :woot:
I LOVE LONGHORN!

damn, I wish microsoft had completed windows longhorn instead of dumping it altogether. :cry: Windows longhorn completely owns vista, and even Mac OSX, i'd say!
