    Although no screenshots are provided at the original source I managed to get a screenshot of how paint currently looks in milestone 3, the watermark has also removed for your viewing pleasure ;)

    I think it will be nice if more applications use the ribbon interface, it makes things look a lot more neater and is an improvement over the 13/14 year old interface of most standard Windows Applications.

    Great news, Paint looks completely different! I hope they change everything...as vista is cool but if it looks the same why not call it vista 1 or something. I hope there will be a beta soon or a leaked working version. :D

    Windows 7 will be the successor to Vista, just as Vista was the successor to XP.
    It name will change later on, Windows 7 is just a code name.

    I done ALOT of searching, i was able to locate a few more pictures Insane. I found them on a china site. I couldn't read it, though I did understand the pictures. As I clicked on almost every link just to be sure that there wasn't a download link and well there wasn't. :( Hopefully there will be soon. As I'm sure Digiex will be one of the first sites to host that file. I hope everyone enjoys the pictures :)

    Nice find there King, defiantly not seen a lot of these shots before.
    Its good to know the old Windows 95 menus such as the ones to change screen resolutions are been updated in Windows 7.

    That was one of the little complaints I had about Vista, new stuff like Window colour and appearance integrated with the Personalization options however old stuff like Screen Savers and Display Settings didn’t.
