Photos: Windows 7 new features and interface

With Windows 7 now revealed to the attendees of PDC, we can now start the process of digging deeper into the early version of the new OS to see just how much has changed from Windows 7.

IT PRO has its hands on the latest pre-beta build, and will be producing a first look in the coming days. In the meantime, we have assembled the following gallery to give you a first-hand look at the UI changes, new features and data management options.
