"Windows 7 Video" Is Fake

A couple different websites around the net have been reporting over the past few days on a new video making the rounds on YouTube, purporting to be a video demo of Windows "7". While it is pretty high quality, very elaborate, and shows off some pretty interesting stuff, multiple sources inside Microsoft have told me it's a fake. One source told me that security on Windows 7 is extremely tight for various reasons, and that we shouldn't expect to see anything for quite a while yet.

Having said that, Microsoft should take a hard, frame-by-frame look at the video. There are some interesting features in there, such as a tabbed Windows Explorer, that would make great additions to the user experience.
