What's New in Windows 7 Build 7048


With the hype surrounding Windows 7, people are paying close attention to each new build of the operating system in-the-making. The latest build is is 7048 and the changes just keep coming-- especially when compared to the public beta build 7000. Build 7048 was said by some sources to be the Release Candidate build, but we now know that it’s still in beta stages. The RC is still anticipated sometime in April. The SuperSite for Windows has documented some of the more apparent visual changes in build 7048. For one, this build drops the Betta fish and introduces a set of nature-themed desktop wallpapers.

While all are beautiful photos, it won’t be long before users will use an image of their own. In addition to new backgrounds, the new Windows 7 build also includes 13 different sound schemes if the old Windows Default beeps and blips are boring you, new icons, a slightly altered Start button orb, revised picture viewer and the removal of the “send feedback” link in the corner of windows.

Click here for a full list of the changes!

    Um my dad bought an LED bulb from some other company that has a bulb rated at 40W that uses 2W, and a 45W that uses 3.5. I guess it only matters when larger companies do something like this though.

    demonhorde665i really miss the old soundblaster card i had back on 98 , it added a theme to teh sound at start up that was real coolevery time i turned on my pc you got lightening and thunder crack sound, for somereason they stoped doing this on the audigy series and alter cards hopefully win 7 will have soemthing similiar I loved heariing that thunder crack sound.granted that wqont be why i woudl update , in general i just need to update but new sound themes are are awsome , is always a welcomed addition

    I certainly hope you were kidding. You can make any sound that the OS makes different just my having a sound file. I once used the opening riff for "Holy Wars...The Punishment Due" as my start-up sound. I don't use that anymore because I find no reason to change the default sounds.

    Because Tom's can't get any original images that relate to firefox.

    They don't even use this one:
