I personally haven't messed with the new Beta, but a co-worker has played with it and from what i've seen it looks just like vista and doesn't seem to be groud breaking or any different at all. It's actually pretty disappointing... still waiting on a new File System too... I don't see it happening any time soon tho. I'll continue to stick with my Windows XP... it's almost a decade old now and it's still better than all the new garbage microsoft is trying to shove down our throats.

well at a glance it is "supposed" to look like vista. I think microsoft learned that as cool as it is to have a futuristic new interface, most people are more comfortable not being overwhelmed with everything looking differently.
In any case, the true improvements are under the hood. For the most part, 7 uses less system resources, and is snappier than even XP, with vista, there is no contest. Also, the aero features are much improved, and require less system resources, among other things. Since running it I've never once looked back to vista, or xp, even on my eee pc 7 is fantastic.
I mean it is a beta. I am impressed with everything so far. I am going to do a clean wipe and install the RC when it comes out.

I downloaded Windows 7 7048 but never installed it because I heard this will come out soon.
