As expected, Windows 7 Beta build 7000 that is supposed to be out on January 2009 has already been leaked on the web. The file, 7000.0.081212-1400_client_en-us_Ultimate-GB1CULFRE_EN_DVD.iso, has been published on torrent sites and if you can’t wait until January to get a hold of the public beta, then *ahem* feel free to grab it.
In case you didn’t know, Windows 7 is the next Windows built by Microsoft after Windows Vista.
The look and feel is indeed like Vista. Many people complain that this is what Vista should have been when it was released. However, due to time and resources constraints, Vista had to be release as it was. A quite similar case with Windows 98 last time (vs Windows 95).
I’ve played around with a few internal builds of Windows 7 before and I’d say that this is probably the operating system that I really want to use on a day to day basis (unless if you still like XP, of course).
Windows 7 has some new features such as jumplists, new taskbar, less annoying User Account Control, and many more under the hood. If you want to find out more about Windows 7, you just have to Google it ;)
