Is it just me or does the whole picture look off in relation to the device? Look at how the keyboard lines up with how he's holding the phone, it looks off to me.

That's a big jump, from 837x all the way to 8411, wonder what they sneaked in that we haven't seen yet?

8411 is from winmain branch, because winmain_rc branch reserved the numbers, actually you can see 8411 was compiled on May 2, earlier than 8376 on May 6 (a Sunday, LOL.)

Windows 8 Cursors: http://www.multiupload.co.uk/OW9JWA1IEP

They look/work nicely, could do with some slight adjustments though.

Brad said in his blog about "small changes" in build 8375; but I guess the big change was something that couldn't be shown on pics.

This is from Mr. Sun of China Telecom(he posted the Connect download pic of 8370) in Chnese Micro-blog dated May 7.

Translate:

Confirmed 8370 does not support developing or testing Metro style apps. May 8 MS will release Consumer Preview Update 2(CPU2) build, tools and assetsenabling Metro apps development.

Maybe that was why MS named it as CPU2 while it's still the RC Escrow on MS Corpnet. .

The normal pointer is off. Does anybody have the default I can restore to? :)

Like others I kinda wonder why they didn't make the busy waiting cursor more like the spinning dots from the load screen. Maybe they thought it wouldn't show up well enough?

That could be it, dunno how well spinning dots would look when you have more than just a solid black background behind them.

Image of the updated Music app in 8 from Paul Thurrot's blog, where he seeming has a Pre-RP build.

Looks nice, just hope it works well too. The App in the CP is just awful.
