Windows 7: It says 7100, but is it?

It says 7100, but is it?

I've installed it, and it says build 7100 and when I run SIW (software infor for Windows) it says 7100 and exp 6/10/10, but where are the "baked it" backgrounds referenced at Gizmodo - Windows 7 Release Candidate 1's Best Surprise New Features - Windows 7 RC1?

How can I verify this build, and where are the groovy backgrounds?

thanks,

reo

Not sure which build you have but they are there on my freshly installed x32 build 7100.
The psychodelic ones are under Characters......I have my own which I carried across using Easy Transfer.

Thanks all, I just booted 7 up again and found the new themes. When I first booted and saw the fish, I thought, well...er....something was fishy!

But it looks like I've got a real 7100 build. Sweet Jesus! now I can kiss Vista goodbye!
