Windows 7 build 7000 x64
 
 

Very good I'm going to dl both 64 and x86 to be sure I come up with something usable on my rather dated system, and because my fam got me a 100 spindle of dvd+r so I've gotta a couple to spare.
Guess I'll start a collection like I did with vista.

Only negative is that the Activation is for 30 days only.
Is the Public Beta being released Friday good until August for everyone who gets to download it?

Yes, till August, but you can only get it if you're like one of the first 2.5 million DLs or around there.

You can extend your 30 days twice to 90 days already.

Vista and now 7 in 32 and 64 bit.
 
 

They also popped up on Technet in the early hours, for subscribers. There is also a driver kit showing which I have queued.

Later. There is also, on the download page, a Windows 7 Driver disk. Looks interesting so I,ve queued it. The Downloading is rather slow (130 - 160 kbs) so It'll take about 5 hours for each (32 and 64) bit. I guess it possibly because there are thousands of users downloading right now

Look at your Theme Options right now. How many are there?
After the patch, I have 5.
Windows 7, Landscape, Light Auras, Nature, and Theme for United States

Looking at it, its nothing that special really. If any of these were actually hidden before the patch, no one is missing anything. When you already have the ability to do a Slide Show and personalize window transparency and color and everything, you can make your own theme to anything you want. Pre-set themes dont mean much anymore because you can mimic them on your own or just do whatever it is that you like more.
