Changes[edit | edit source]

  • This build now uses the Superbar by default.
  • The login screen now uses a gray colored aurora reminiscent of Windows Vista.
  • The default desktop background has been changed to the shade of blue used in Windows 2000 and Windows Me.
  • The boot screen has been reverted to the one seen in Windows Vista/Server 2008.
  • This is the first build to use the Windows Server 2008 R2 branding on the Windows Setup, login screen and winver. However, it still identifies itself as Windows Server 7 in the desktop watermark and Windows 7 in the Windows Preinstallation Environment watermark.
  • The copyright date of winver.exe has been updated from 2007 to 2008.
  • The Windows logo on the Start button (when the Windows Classic theme is in use) has been uplifted and now resembles the RTM.
  • The Windows logo in System Properties has been updated to the one seen in Windows Vista.
