The picture above is a supposed leaked picture of the new Windows 7 Beta. The site who had originally posted the pictures was asked to take them down, so this does have some credibility. Windows has been trying to regain its following and one way to do that is to make Windows 7 look nothing like Vista and make it less system resource intensive. The plan for "7" if correct, will offer just the OS with nothing else installed. You can then go and download the add-ons for free from windows live if you so choose. A beta should be available soon to the privileged few and we should know more then.
