An early look at Windows 7 improved boot screen

For some people fancy boot screens are just as useless as fast boot times, but we've had that kind of debate already. As far as I'm concerned, I wouldn't mind having both, and even better if it's finally on Windows 7 which looks to be shipping as soon as the second half of next year. In the meantime, I will have to do with my plain DOS-style boot screen which replaces Vista's poor attempt at a subtle loading screen.

Anyway, here's an early look at Windows 7 boot screen as recorded by Chris123NT from the OS' preview build 6954 (found via Neowin).

Update: We have added a new source for the video as the original was removed from MSN's Soapbox service.
