Play Behind the Windows 7 Startup Animation
You see it every day (or every few weeks for those of us who leave their computers on) now you can see the thinking behind the Windows 7 Startup Animation. Rolf Ebeling was new to Microsoft when he was handed the task of coming up with what you would see when your computer starts. Some significant changes were made to this part of the boot sequence compared to Vista, which brought both benefits and challenges, for instance when the animation loads there are no graphics or audio drivers loaded yet. See the progression of the startup animation and meet one of the people behind the product.
