    Ok - I want each and every visitor that views these screenshots to show someone else who's not familiar with Windows Vista - show them what they can expect with the next Windows release. These screenshots are taken directly from Build 5219 - the September Community Technology Preview.

    Screenshot: <A href="http://archer.oregontel.com/brandon/vista/5219/3d.png">The new 3D Avalon Effects for viewing Multiple Windows.
    </A>Screenshot: The new Address Book in Windows - rumored to be called Windows Phonebook.
    Screenshot: <A href="http://archer.oregontel.com/brandon/vista/5219/calendar.png">Windows Calendar - new built in way to keep tabs on your latest happenings!
    </A>Screenshot: The Windows Vista Desktop.
    Screenshot: A new look to old games - plus a few new games.
    Screenshot: Windows Photo Library - view your photo collections!
    Screenshot: SafeDocs - to be called Windows Backup, the new Backup utlitiy in Windows!

    </A>Screenshot: A new look to Solitare with new game options!
    Screenshot: Taskbar Thumbnails!

    Again, these are from Build 5219. These are no where near finished products and features for Windows Vista. These are meant to give the typical home user an idea on what to expect with Windows Vista. I know my friends and family will use many of these features without having to worry about downloading seperate programs such as Windows Photo Library.

    Windows Vista Beta 2 is expected to be a broader release - giving many home users a chance to dip their feet into Vista. Until then, technical beta testers will be given monthly Community Technology Previews (CTP). The next CTP is expected to be released in the middle-to-late October. With Beta 2, expect to see some major User Interface changes. Some of these changes have accidentally been hinted at when Microsoft released an image of a new type of "Start" button earlier this month. </DIV>

    I have some screenshots from the 5219 build, I'll upload a few since I have the new space...*Done

    The one with the glass taskbar are not faked, I got the theme from http://www.ronny.org.uk

    I stretched the taskbar to show how the blur effect is produced even by the taskbar, watching ronny make themes like these really opens my mind as to the realm of possibilities that theme modding can bring once Vista is released to the public...



    (Anyway check out the screenshots & tell me what you think)
