Here's what I think will be changed or added from the time frame between the Beta release and the final release. The Taskbar: . The Taskbar will be changed again to emulate a dock even moreso than the Beta release. Icons will zoom or highlight, similar Mac OS X Tiger. . The Windows Orb will be gone. The icon on the far-left will be the Explorer icon, and upon right-clicking, everything can be seen in the jump list, such as Documents, Libraries, Control Panel, etc. . With the previously-mentioned change in mind, a new type of folder/library will be called "Programs", which will work just like "All Programs" from XP/Vista. . There will be a search button located to the left of the Show Desktop button (Tall, vertical). It will be the same size, but will have the magnifying glass icon. . The Taskbar itself will be smaller, as the icons would be a bit smaller than the default size, but larger than the ones enabled in the "Show Small Icons" option. Random Visual Stuff: . The Bootup Animation will be a bit higher-res. . If there's only one user on the PC, the background in the log-in screen will be the one the user currently has. . DreamScene-styled wallpapers will be included. . There will be more screensavers. Tweaked/New Features: . Ctrl+Alt+Del will once again open up the task manager ONLY. . Windows+C will replace the old shortcut to open up the Shut Down/Restart/Log Off /Task Manager screen. . When a taskbar icon flashes (Like AIM/MSN for example), there will toggle-ble option to have be a small Thumbnail Preview of the new window that flashes for 2 seconds. . (Obvious) App/Device compatibility issues. . (Obvious) Random bugs/imperfections.
