=> Interesting changes in this specific build (from b7000 > b7022):
- 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.
- WMP change: " It has stream now instead of the sharing options" (> don't understand)
- 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.
- 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.

you should be able to recover from it if anything goes wrong...
(either through unnistalling the driver through safe mode or startup repair...)
and also because a big portion of the computer populace is running 32bit OS's...
(i count since i am running a enviroment where there is a 32 and 64 bit systems everyday...)
while it would be nice to make windows 7 64 only i think that would undermine 7's true goal which is to grab those Xp users who have not upgraded (which almost for sure are running a 32bit OS....)
not that i would love it too but that would mean that i would decommission my server pc that is still working...
when it burns out ill hop on 64 for sure but for now i am still tied to 32 bit...
and the best thing about the move is that eventually 64 will be leaner than it is now because right it has to carry a 32bit compatibility layer....
when Windows 8 or 9 (if the last that long or if they are willing to release singularity or if it becomes the OS...)
you can be for sure that they will remove that compatibility layer which means that any extra overhead and memory usage will be gone..
and that 64 OS's will jump by leaps and bounds....

Yah, I'll wait until it's an official release before I get it.
That plus it's only 32 bit so far
Grimm'ee - MS considered making W7 a 64bit only system but changed their minds due to public feedback. 64bit is maturing fast enough to have done it but so far the majority of the public just doesn't seem quite prepared for it yet, but I'd bet the farm that the next OS after W7 is strictly 64bit.
