本只是想描述一下事实,不想引来些注意,关于上一篇 现实版 Windows 7,说明一点:都是真的。我确实姓周,可惜不叫正龙。从光盘到安装使用过程,到截图,无伪造,无 Photoshop。

我不觉得 Win7 M1 看上去没有大得变化有什么好奇怪的,特别是这个“没有大的变化”只是说 UI 而已。只有黑猩猩才总是觉得香蕉很黄很暴力就很好吃一样,傻X 总是认为界面变化很大才说明整个系统变化很大。

今天又看了一下 license。这个 M1 版本在 2008 年 5 月 7 日到期。

新截图和视频在本页最下面。


I was about to share something interesting about Windows 7 in my last post, Windows 7: The Real Thing. The ISO image, installation, evaluation and the screenshots are all real. I mean there is no Photoshop or anything like that involved.

I’m not a person who makes himself complacent by faking something hot, neither will I be unhappy if someone denies the real information I posted. I don’t mean to draw much attention, especially from those suckers. When I post images, there is Photoshop, when a piece of video, there is something called Premiere, or DreamWorks?

I don’t think there is anything wrong, disappointing or weird that Windows 7 Milestone 1 isn’t greatly different from Vista. It’s only Milestone 1 so lots of code may be reused. Besides, even we can’t see much visual changes (say, user interfaces), that doesn’t mean Win7 internals don’t change greatly.

Here from the release notes, I read
The software will stop running on May 7, 2008. You may not receive any other notice. You may not be able to access data used with the software when it stops running.

性能监视器,layout 变化了些。Performance monitor, layout changes compared with that of Vista。

可靠性监视器。Reliability monitor。

比较完整的 boot 过程,界面和查看信息,本来想录一下 Media Center,不过最后发现手机不够好,不清楚,讲究一下吧。
Boot process, view related information. The Media Center part isn’t clear enought b’coz my Treo 750′s camera…

Maybe you can show that the new Previous Versions icon (that supposedly was checked in immediately before branching for version 6.0.600x.xxxxx (after Vista Beta 2))?

IT界认识中文的国外的网友不少啊!

by appbeta on 2008-01-26 at 8:00 am. #

因为中文是使用人数最多的~
另外, 博主啊, 以后截图可不可以使用 PNG 格式呢, JPG 压缩的太烂了… 这些截图都很有价值的, 等到 Windows 7 真正发布的时候, 再从头看来, 感觉很不一样的.

What is the iso size ?

by john on 2008-01-26 at 7:52 pm. #

可不可以告诉我那里下载ISO,我也想体验

by Jet Ju on 2008-01-26 at 7:53 pm. #

I cannot actually believe this, how can any of you think thats real?
I am a beta tester for Microsoft, have seen his video? he shows you the software version from media center, notice something? first the copyright is wrong, its 2006, and also it says clearly Windows Vista, surely you can realise how easy it is to do the changes for the logo and about page on the main OS? its just like any transformation pack, for example windows X’s pack, windowsxlive.net that can do it to XP just fine.

Thanks

You’re a fucking loser. Anybody with 5 minutes can hack 3 resources. Apart from the none to subtle zooming to highlight your mods all you did is show us pointless shit in VMC.

Are you people really that stupid? It’s Milestone 1, Yeah that’s right 1!. If You really think microsoft is gonna put a lot of effort into one of the very first builds of 7, you must be that stupid! Ok lets look back… Longhorn M1 – Looked almost exactly like xp. early Whistler build looked almost exactly like ME and 2000. you people gotta think about this kinda stuff before you say “that’s a fake… FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE… Stop posting these stupid fake pictures… etc, etc, etc” These have already been proven NOT to be Fake by Paul Thorout of WinSuper Site. Oh and the really stupid people out there will say “Oh, well Paul Thorout is dumb then. I would know. I know best because I’m all that and you’re nothing to me. I’m so selfish and inconsiderate, blah, blah, blah,blah,blah.” Ok I’m done here. I’ve said what I wanted to say to all you idiots who say it’s fake and who are criticizing whoever posted this generously to keep us informed.
