An early look at Windows 7 improved boot screen

By on December 4, 2008, 5:07 AM
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.

Without wishing to be too critical...Watching the tumble dryer for a couple of minutes would have been more informative. :)

I have the Pre Beta windows 7 beside tring to get drivers for eveything to work right it runs smoth now of course drivers will come with time. It is like xp just has A Vista look (not a fan of how vista looked or ran) it is much smotther on simple things have not been able to run high end games yet but should know soon and will let any know if they want to. The number of prosses that are running on Idle are 5 so much like XP not vista.
