Windows 7: What do you think's gonna be in the RTM?

What do you think's gonna be in the RTM?

On July 13th, MS will release the RTM for Windows 7. We all know that speed, stability, and overall performance will be be better than the RC and its subsequent builds, but what do you think MS is hiding from us? Surely they have to add SOME new things...even if it's as minor as a simple tweak, like the changed Orb found in 7057/7100. Also, keep in mind that MS has a conference around the time of the RTM release, so maybe they'll announce something? Here's what I think:
  • A GUI Change. Paul T. said that MS would introduce a new GUI, or at least a tweaked GUI in the RTM. What could possibly be in it? I think that the Start Menu is ripe for change. Perhaps the icons on the taskbar could be centered, akin to Mac OS X? I also predict possibly more semi-transparent effects/menus.
  • More keyboard shortcuts. Pressing an F# key to bring up Gadgets would be nice, as well as Win+T for the Task Manager would be convenient.
  • The return of DreamScenes, but renamed simply "Animated Desktop". Another possibility could be an interactive desktop.

Nothing is going to change. There was an article way back as to why they can't change icons now. It said that it won't happen because they'd have to redocument everything and it'd cost a lot of $$$.

Well, if MS is gonna show off the RTM during the conference, don't you think that they'd show something off? The only icons MS needs to change are minor ones, like the Registry icon, the Tasbar & Start Menu Properties icon, and others.

What I'd like to see most in RTM would be the inclusion of XP Mode as part of OOBE, but this is likely not going to happen, as Microsoft would be stepping on a lot of toes by doing this - The EU is *itching about Internet Explorer!

Otherwise, I do not believe that RTM would include any major changes over and above what we've seen in the more recent builds...

My guess would be no changes. I was surprised they changed the wallpaper after it left beta.
