I like Windows Wii
When I open the command prompt on the RC it shows V 6.1.7100I thoguht it had been declared that it was to be known as Windows 7 end of as that isn't its code name. And its Version 7 of windows, just open command prompt and you will see it shows Windows V7.blarhg just as Vista shows Windows Version 6.0.6001
They should call it Millenium Edition.
It appears even MS don't know -
Windows 7 Kernel version remains unchanged - still 7.0 | Windows 7 CenterWe named it Windows 7 from the beginning, it wasn’t even marketing that originally chose that brand, it was our internal “code name.” The builds were versioned at 7.0. It broke compatibility for too many apps/drivers, so we changed the versioning APIs to report 6.1 to reflect the level of compatibility that should be expected by pre-existing software.
I thought we’d been over this. Windows 7 is Windows 7.0. There are far more important things than driver architecture that change (and hell, there are driver architecture changes in Win7).
So no, there is no “Windows 6.1 kernel” and never was. There’s just the Windows 7 kernel.
Windows Last Ditch Effort?
Ok so next question. Windows 7 and 2008 R2 are supposed to be the same code base and released at the same time, so is 2008 R2 now version 7 as well
Ok I know these are basic things, but it's not nothing.
I've installed no additional software yet and I've already, from the 64bit RC:
load a video from my MicroDS card (of which it loaded from the front media card reader on the PC) taken on my phone
played it in Media Player (which is nice and minimalist) to find some screen that blipped for a split second (hence this excercise)
zoomed that with the built in Magnifier to read the small text
printed it out to show a colleague.
Now I don't think my Macbook Pro does that out of the box.
Oh, and I think it will be called...Windows 7
Has to be kept as Windows 7 - the beta has been more popular and mainstream than any previous release and loads are referring to it by that name
Plus its just a number, not the name of a bloody ski resort for once
surely i-windows !!!
