Windows 7: Build 6780 Screenshots Revealed

Microsoft recently released a Windows 7 build, codenamed “Milestone 3 (build 6780)” of their upcoming operating system to a few selected partners and manufacturers. They still haven’t revealed the final name for the OS, as is evident from the build name 🙂

This time the screenshots went up online first at ThinkNext, and in part 1 of their post (no part 2 as yet), there are quire a few interesting things to note. Firstly, the GUI is a slightly updated version of Vista, their current flagship OS. But there are (visual) changes reflected in these screenshots, but still no details as to changes under the hood. Especially worth noting are the changes in Calculator, Notepad and Paint! Notepad gets a MS Office like ribbon, along with Paint, which will be a much welcomed update to these very old porgrames.

Also of extreme interest is the Linux like Power ShellScriptin enviornment. Not much info is available, but it really looks interesting !

Interesting Google Earth Finds

Found this very interesting topic on Digg. As you know, google earth takes snapshots of a particular area and makes them avilable for users of Google Earth Software, and these snapshots are generally updated after three odd months atleast, unless its a place of high importance or event. The following article at the-amazing had quite a few such snapshots compiled in one place. Read further for some sample screen shots, and more at the My New Blog.

and a few more after the link!
