I hope they change all of the 98/XP icons that were left over, and the default wallpaper. It's sooo ugly.

What 98/XP icons? Not saying I don't agree with you, I hate them too and they should be replaced, but I've never noticed any old 98/XP icons in Win7.

+1 the icons do need changing , just be nice to set up my notebook and not have to mess about with new build every week , although i do enjoy build fever lol.

So it looks like the " Aero Diamond myth" is well and truly dead..... Maybe windows 8 ?

The Regedit, the Taskbar/Start menu icon (It still has Vista's taskbar in it), the images of computer monitors from the Personalization/Screensaver Preview screens are still old, white CRT ones.

The default beige cardboard effect icons are horrid and need to go , Some glass effect ones would be cool.

I didn't mean indefinitely free, I just meant we have access to the installer files, for free. Sorry for the confusion.
