My thoughts exactly :p So incredibly bad. Its also too quick and too eye-candy-like to be an alpha build, really.

I guess. But those screenshots, except for the bootscreen (which might be real); the design philosophy and bad spelling aside, just doesn't look like a genuine build. Plus at M1 the UI would be very much like Vista, some new user interface bits would make it into Beta 1 but the user interface would not be anywhere nearly done until at least Beta 3 / RC.

So I conclude that these screenshots are not of Windows 7 M1.

Yeah, ok, those are clearly fake.

1.) Not using the Windows 7 alpha boot screen.

2.) Does not use a mixture of XP Icons.

3.) They are not up to build "7000", or code naming it 'Longhorn'. That was Vista.

4.) MSN Messenger 12 Does not exsist. Windows Live Messenger 8.5 however, does.

5.) Windows HD Player...all i can say is wtf ?

6.) IE 11...wtf? with IE 6 icon...wtf?

7.) Why would it have what looks to be a very poor knock attempt of longhorns 'My computer' from back in preview videos ?.

8.) Inconsistent UI, this is probably the most obvious over all.

9.) Copyright 2007 eh ?

I'd say good work at wasting time whoever made it.

By Looking at this, looks like Microsoft is back to Longhorn, if this is not a fake...

If?

I'm pretty sure that the *last* thing MS will do to Windows 7 in these early stages is to change its looks. They will probably focus on more important things like cleaning the kernel, implementing new features.

Those pictures have been on Neowin a good few months ago btw.

I remember seeing them quite a while ago on here :)

In the picture you can notice that the rams are 80% lol. :D

I don't think this is fake. I am sorry for all the people who say this is fake, but watch the video and see. Who the hell can make a theme for vista that looks like that and fake it? I believe it is impossible and this is really Windows 7.

Unless things have changed since Whistler when i stopped paying attention. M1 isnt a tangible item. No code involved, just planning. Please Advise.

M1 typicly means coding changes, no new features (not many really) but same small appreance changes to what MOSTLY looks like the last OS (Vista in this case)

I'm sorry but it's an obvious fake, as stated by the name 'MSN Messenger', and IE11. Since when does MS skip 4 versions of a program just to put a 'newer version' into an alpha stage OS. They wouldn't. Any Windows 7 M1 out there will probably be running IE7.

You know, though its probly fake, consider this...... Why NOT include the new gui in alpha builds? I mean, look what happened with Vista...... They waited too damn long to integrate the new GUI into beta builds that it ended up being detrimental to the performance of Vista..... Honestly, I think they SHOULD create the gui first...... at least then, they'd have over a year to tweak the gui so its not going to drag down your computer like it has in XP and Vista.
