Suddenly, new Windows 7 builds are coming at a rapid clip and, more notably, are leaking much more quickly. In the past, we'd see builds that were a month or more old at the time. But the most recent leak, of build 7057, is just a week old. Progress!

As with the previous few leaked builds I've seen, there are numerous small changes this time around. The Setup wallpaper has been changed. There are new default icons in the Start Menu, and a new padlock icon overlay appears on protected folders. Again, there are new Themes, and some new wallpapers. There are also new user account images for the first time. There's probably more, but I've barely had time to run a quick lap around this version of the OS. If there's more, I'll be sure to write it up.

Here are a few shots showing off Windows 7 build 7057.

for those too lazy to DL and test

Have they added a way to make explorer suck less? I have been messing with it a bit and it seems so much less intuitive then previous versions. I spent like 3 minutes and couldn't figure out how to add a new folder with just the mouse when inside another folder in details view where the details took up the eniter screen (which I didn't force to happen so yes, this could happen to others). Though I believe I turned off all of the "fancy" crap. Oh well, its go home from work time!

Intel Atom N270, 1GB ram, look at my sig rig...

It runs great, and the video driver is automatically recognized and aero is enabled right away (unlike vista).

Do consider upgrading to 2gb though, its cheap and easy, and will make things much more snappy.
