The Windows Blog just started to show off Windows 7's reduced-waste easy-open disc packaging. At a distance, it looks like it couldn't be more plain-Jane, but when you look closely, you can see it's got some wacky touches.
OK, remember that crazy Windows 7 desktop art? If you look around the white rippling window, you can see wisps of cartoony icons dancing in and around the borders. And is that a full-on JJ Abrams Star Trek lens flare we see flashing through the middle? Microsoft didn't have anything more hi-res for us to examine, and I could be totally off base, but it's fun to see that the playfulness of Windows 7 come through on the box.
