    I believe the final box art for Ultimate will be Steve Jobs receiving a roundhouse kick to the bawlz. MS is in talks for a contract with Chuck Norris.

    Looks good, but probably not final. There's no fine print on the box label. ;)

    I doubt these are real, but they sure look good enough.

    I wish I got the pretty boxes with my copies of microsoft products. I know a guy who still shows off his Windows Vista Ultimate box. Lol. I also avoid him like the plauge.

    Looks right, because it follows the proper colour scheme and these are the same cases MS is using for other boxed products like Expression Web II.

    Also, box labels get stickered on, they are not built into the case.

    "With Microsoft only having confirmed that Windows 7 will be shipping in time for this holiday season"

    Well, like I predicted, they said something additional today, so those mught very well be the boxes.

    See the news here:

    To sum it up: Windows 7 be released to manufacturing (RTM) by August.

    Are they really gonna call it windows 7? I thought it was just a code name, like longhorn = Vista.

    Have they announced that Windows 7 is the official name? I would like that, it's straight and simple, and that way it can't be confused with Vista.

    Errr.... you are both being ironic right ?

    Microsoft announced that Windows codenamed "7" would actually be called Windows 7 on the 13th of October of last year. It will be.. 7 months tomorrow.
