Windows 7 box art leaks

Potential Windows 7 box art leaked earlier this week from Polish site Centrumxp.

Originally many speculated that these images were fake but blogger Long Zheng has unearthed Microsoft using the same logo on the box art, elsewhere.

Microsoft has created a Windows Lounge site for internal employees to join a Facebook group for information, training and marketing for Windows 7. The group uses the following image for its logo:

Compared to the box art that was leaked it's too similar. It appears as though this could be concept or final box art for the Windows 7 packaging. Microsoft officials have said "off the record" that Windows 7 will RTM in the Summer and be available for the Fall. It's not unreasonable for the company to be finalising marketing materials, logos and packaging at this stage.

absolutely no doubt this is fake, even the Microsoft logo uses the wrong font

That, and the page is called "custom dvd cover".

I don't think anyone was suggesting it was real...

So XP lasted 5 years and Vista lasted less than 3?

XP was released in 2001, so its slightly longer than 5 years...Just slightly

It only "lasted" that long because of Vista's delays. Vista will work and remain supported well after Win 7's launch. Win 7 probably will see a followup in around three years also.

By that logic, Windows 2000 lasted less than 2 years.

And Win 3.1 "lasted" 3, and Win 95 lasted 3, and Win 98 lasted 2, and Win Me lasted 1, and WinXP lasted 5, and Vista lasted 3.

Spot the odd one out.

I hope MAC does not notice this...
If you point your right hand down, and make a 7 out of your thumb and index finger, that looks alot like the 7 on the windows 7 box.
But now turn your hand back over, and you have a L Like you place on your forehead for losers.


Unless Microsoft could beat them to the punch and do something like
"Windows 7, everything else is for Losers."

Mac is not an acronym. It is not a person, or group. It is a product.

Well done, you have spotted what the shape of a seven looks like.

Is'nt Windows7 is only a code name? Wonder what MS would call it when it's RTM

No, it was announced some time ago that "Windows 7" would be the official name. It's not just a code name!
