In the latest leaked build of Windows 7, Microsoft decided to take themes a step further, but providing some themes specific to your region. If your in the US, you get wallpapers that are supposed to represent the US and the glass border color is different. If you're in Australia, you get your own pack, as well as Canada (I'll talk about more of this later).
A few of the wallpapers:

A few from the US pack:

The UK:

Canada, Australia, South Africa (I think that's the 3rd one, and yes, they are all the same):

I'm obviously not going to upload them all via tinypic because it will take me too long. Here is a zip with all the pictures, duplicates and all:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=35Y52Z1I

This is taken from a fresh install of 6956. The folder names are different, but the contents aren't. If you download it, there are duplicates. It seems that MS is still working on this features with wallpapers. The Canadian, Austrialian, and ZA (I'm not sure what ZA is supposed to stand for) are the same files, but as you can see, the file names are different to reflect what folder they are supposed to be in.

For those of you who just want the wallpapers, here is a zip with all the wallpapers with no duplicates (there may be one picture that is duplcated):

These are the original pictures in there 1920x1200 glory. Enjoy

EDIT: The rest of the pictures are posted individually.

Ok.

Here are some screenshots I took a few moments ago:

As you guys can see, the Windows 7 theme for Vista needs some updates.

For one: Open applications no longer really have a color to them in the taskbar. Instead, it looks fogged up, as seen in the screenshots. Also, there is no arrows for each of the open applications, seen in the latest theme update.

I added the all the pictures as individual pictures.

I used tinypic because imageshack sucks and it's unreliable. Unfortunately, tinypic doesn't offer thumbnails (if they do, I don't know how to do it as a thumbnail).

Sorry for the stretching.

The themes are nothing more than color and wallpaper combinations for now but it’s expected that more stuff and more regional themes will be added as time goes on. For now, the five English-speaking countries currently stereotyped themed in build 6956+ are:

Australia

Canada

South Africa

United Kingdom

United States

Unfortunately that's something imageshack offers. I refuse to use that crappy service with sporadic downtimes.

I'm also not going to take the time to resize the pictures, upload them, attempt to relink everything using the smaller pictures as links.

If an admin wants to do all that or if they want to host the images on imageshack, I won't object.

I also have more important things right now then trying to make everyone happy. It's exam week at my school, and I have an exam tomorrow.

There is a megaupload link in the post.

There is one with duplicates, and one without. You probably want the one without duplicates.

Last time I'm going to answer this.

Imageshack offers thumbnails.

Image shack is crap (unreliable, slow, over all, crappy).

Tinypic is much better as far as reliability and speed goes. Unfortunately, they don't offer thumbnails as an option.

I'm not going to spend the time making my own thumnails and uploading them to tinypic and relinking the thumbnails with the pictures. I'm not going to spend the time. I have better and more important things to do. If you want it done, you can do it yourself and I will be happy to edit my post to include the thumbnails (don't use imageshack, for the love of God). I already uploaded 18 pictures, I'm not doing it again.

I originally didn't have any of the pictures, just links to a few of the pictures. I had/have all the pictures in a zip file for those who want them all. But then it seemed that people were only after a specific wallpaper or they didn't know what was in it.

I can delete the pictures, but I'm not going to manually do thumbnails.

I could use imageshack, but then people will complain about not being able to access a wallpaper.

It's not that bad. not having thumbnails.

I'm not typing this again.

And to repeat. If you want thumbnails, do them for me and I'll be more than happy to edit the post.

They do offer the thumbnails. Just add "_t" after the file name.
I've edited the first post. Thanks for all the wallpapers. :)
