The leaked Windows 7 build probably is the beta

I haven't been certain, even though leaked build 7000 has the feedback link on every window promised for the beta, but the PC sitting on stage waiting for the Ballmer keynote to begin has the same fighting fish background and the same build 7000 number (detective work by Simon and I combined).

Boing Boing just asked me what I thought the big 'surprise' would be. The beta and the ship date, I said. Is that all, they wondered; is that enough? Well, I pointed out, if Microsoft doesn't get it right, they're stuffed.
