I'm visiting my cousin this weekend and staying at his house. I just woke up and it seems that he's not here. I tried to find his computer and I found this netbook.
Turned it on, but it prompted me for a password. I tried some gibberish, but now it gave me an error. I don't even know what OS this is. But, knowing that my cousin works at Microsoft gave me an idea... You know. Windows 8?

It even has some weird version of internet explorer. Seems like all it's functions have been cut away.

Interesting to say the least... thanks for sharing

if it is Windows 8.. or a concept of Windows 8.

Might also be some heavy customization as well

Wait, if you think that is Windows 8, you shouldn't put it on because Microsoft haven't said anything yet, you can get into trouble. But anyways it looks nice. :)

Today, I found something. So you can see the screenshot has no taskbar right? In deviantART, I found an app that can help you hide taskbar. I'm not being rude or something, but Maybe he use that I trick us.

Those on-screen instructions are quite clear and different from the usual lockout menu prompt. The file name it mentions and wdev... developer? curious, no results on those in Google though.

You could probably enable Quick Launch then delete all items so there are none. It would then serve as a spacer that you could resize to anything you want.

I think others do something else somehow to make a spacer, but not sure.

If QL doesn't work well for that, I never tried it so don't blame me heh heh.

From looking at that screen shot, all it looks like to me, he is using a USB dongle, and running the O/S on a Key. You can get full details how this is done at MaximumPC magazines website, just search OS on a Key. :sleepy:

That's definitely not a Windows 8 build. It has the old Start logo. This honestly looks like a concept build of Windows 7, like, right after vista. Almost seems like what Windows 7 would had been in an alternate universe if Windows Longhorn made it out how it was supposed to come out...

Yeah it is, otherwise it would have the Start orb. The start logo is custom...you can put anything there you want with Classic Shell's options or even use ResHacker.
