Windows 7 screenshots leaked

New interface comes to light

The blog 'Winners of Life' has posted a number of interesting screenshots allegedly from the latest build of Windows 7, the successor to Windows Vista.

Misinformation over an early release date and a fear of failing to live up to expectations has caused Microsoft to remain adamantly silent on development of the new system. Nevertheless, some details have come to light, including an increasing focus on touch screen input.

The leaking of the screenshots is in line with the rumoured May 2008 code drop for Milestone 2 of the operating system, and the first example of significant changes to the user interface compared to Windows Vista. The screenshots have prompted some pundits to draw parallels to Apple's Mac OS X.

It is unlikely that all changes seen in this series of screenshots will remain in the final version, although it is possible that the use of a touch-screen input will be a major focus for the operating system upon. Windows 7 is currently scheduled for a 2010 release.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
