Yes, the early screen shots seem to confirm what many expected, it's Vista+. When Vista came out it was late, I imagine Windows 7 will be too in line with most things that MS bring out in OS terms.
The screen shots of 7, which I agree may not be the same when 7 is launched is pure Vista. Vista had some promised elements removed just so it could be launched and not delayed even further. 7 is seen by many to simply roll in these features and of course some enhancements.
In effect it will be in my view Vista+ whatever the fancy label it's given.
just as i am about to come off the fence and get vista there is talk of windows 7 next year.
still think i will be going ahead in a couple of weeks i think. i have got to upgrade my ram but it seems it will be for the experience and fun of tinkering with a new o/s. as vista offers nothing new that i cannot get with xp.
i think windows 7 will be the equivalent upgrade similar to w.98 to w.Me with an option to de bloat.
Lol. I guess it all boils down to the fact.. PEOPLE DONT LIKE CHANGE! :-) save future moaning by saying the immortal words "WINDOWS SUCKS!" just once and for all eternity..! seriously though, everyone moaning that 2000 or 98 was so much better than xp... Lol
