5728 tidbits

Recommended Posts

Long    3

Here's a collection of the Vista build 5728 tidbits I've found.

Could this be a new boot animation & sound?

Could this be the "spiritual" branding experience Steve Ball, group program manager for the Windows Audio Video Excellence team was talking about?

New Vista nature wallpapers

As you would expect, the quality of these wallpapers are amazing. And I'm sure there are many more wallpapers like these that are not going to be in the betas, but the injected into the final builds to be a surprise.

New icons

And check this out, the fidelity and attention-to-detail for the Journal icon is amazing. Leather good enough to eat!

Proof of Desktop Aurora?

This is most obvious and clearest indication of the Aurora feature. The background features the prominent blue and green colours which the Microsoft designs have been talking about for a long time, as well as the aurora effect which we've all been used to. But in addition, the flare makes a guest apperance with a cool glass effect.

I am hoping (fingers crossed) that we get the full desktop aurora...I think it's going to be breathe taking to see (as long as it's not breathe taking on our CPU/GPU as well) ... :yes:

Good info, thanks for the heads up (Y)

Those wallpapers were available when you installed RC1 as the Home Edition. I uploaded them a couple weeks ago.

Yeah, why does every different version of Vista have different wallpapers? I installed Starter Edition in VMWare just to check it out, and had completely different wallpapers that the ones that come with Ultimate...

That boot sound nearly scared the crap out of me. I expected something a bit calmer. :|

For some weird reason hearing that brings the classic Mac OS boot sounds to mind.

I don't know why they didn't do more than 4/16 whatever colors during boot sooner, let alone animation...

Na, its been replaced by Aero Aurora Diamond which has colours that change according to how errect your penis is, and included with each box is a mind reading tool that'll allow you to download your whole brain to the computer, and physically be in the net.

*Waits to see how long this bull**** is actually taken seriously by some of the nitwitts here*

This was the outtro in the end of videos in the help resources. I did not say these were the actual new bootscreens, but I speculated they could be the new boot animation and sound.
