A few things I noticed:

-- Its faster!!!

Control Panel has updated the sorting method....There is no "Show all control panel items" anymore, just a View by->Category, Small Icons, Large Icons

UAC doesn't ask for restart anymore when you turn it to the last level (off)

Gadgets work with UAC off by default, no tweaking needed.

The coloring of many windows such as Windows Update, Personalization, Computer properties etc has slightly changed

Action center has a few visual (for now) updates, including some activity to the taskbar icon

A Desktop Gadget Gallery icon has been added to the All programs start menu. It just opens the gadgets normal window.

Homegroup and Network windows have visual improvements.

That's it... Sorry if in my excitement I didn't read previous posts where all these could have been mentioned already...

Off to find more new thingies...

Thanks for the detailed enhancements!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyone and everyone...please add to the forums as to what you have discovered in the new release

UAC does need a restart,only the balloon doesn't popup from the notification area. Instead, it's added in the action center's notifications.

Higher WEI Rating

In 7022 build, I get a higher WEI rating with my current system specs than I got with 7000.

7000 gave me 4.1 for my graphics card.
7022 give me 4.5

Performance and stability seems great so far, just like 7000

Windows Media Center seems a lot more responsive...

Can some one check the (winmain) version on the 7000 build?

Thanks, Ant

By 'win7':

- Patch fixing the MP3 corruption bug is already installed.
- Clock gadget received a larger size.
- Gadgets menu changed slightly.
- Some themes - like the UK one - have slightly been changed.
- Searching through start menu seems a bit faster now.
- Internet Explorer 8 Release Candidate 1 is present.
- Gadgets are still working after turning UAC off.
- You have the chosen of displaying or hiding icons and gadgets at the desktop.

By 'TripOG':

- WMP change: "
It has stream now instead of the sharing options" (> don't understand)

By 'limneos':

- Generally a bit faster.
"Show all control panel items"has been deleted in CP. Instead you can only choose from: 'View by > Category, Small Icons, Large Icons.'
- When turning off UAC, there isn't a balloon popup anymore: instead it's a notification in the action center.
- Coloring of many windows have slightly been changed.
- Few changes to Action Center: few visual updates, activity to taskbar icon.
- New icon in 'All Programs': Desktop Gadget Gallery.
- Few visual improvements to the Homegroup and Network windows.
- You're able to add a 'Downloads' link to the start menu.
- Same with a 'Homegroup' link.

>> Others:

- Only the 32 bits version has been leaked.
- This is NOT the latest build Microsoft internals are testing.
- The navigation pane to the left has changed from blue to grayish white.


- Installation seems much faster.
- It no longer asks you to join a HomeGroup during the setup, instead it's being created automatically.

- After the second reboot during install, when the bootloader came up there were three options: -Windows 7 (this would finish the install), Windows 7 Rollback (Not sure what this does. Possibly rolls back all changes the installer made? This did not show while installing Beta 1), and Windows 7 x86 (my previous installation of Windows 7).

- HomeGroup gets a new icon.

- General higher stability.

- New animation for the Explorer side pane.

- Ability to change width between address bar and search bar in explorer.


- Aurora and Energy screensavers have been removed.
- New Welcome Center background.
- Now Playing is smaller: just artwork with the song name, artist, and album name cycling at the top.
- Now Playing now renders fonts crystal sharp.
- Windows Photo Viewer now looks like a Win7 application.
- New explorer to sidepanel explorer animation.
- New transition effects while changing wallpaper manually.
- 'Library' button moved to the top right of the Now Playing window.
- Added ability to remove more Windows Features (e.g. WMP, Windows Media Center, Windows DVD Maker)
- Jump Lists have received new icons.
This is great, i have been meaning to do similar all day but am far to lazy :)
