It's a marketing move by Microsoft. If people don't like what's shown next month, then they can still say it's not Windows 7. If they do, then they'll say it's close to 7.

god i hope not....WM 6.5 or 6.6 both suck compared to whats out...all they did was take 6.1 and give it more finger friendly items and kinetic scrolling....if that is the case ill be switching to android so fast

I think we called this months ago
in that wm 6.6 would be the intermediate between 7 without having any clue as to what these 6.5.x builds were
microsoft planned to continue releasing wm 6.5 and that is clearly shown by wmexperts report of more 6.5 builds (where the monicker of 6.5.x was derived from anyway)

so no news for me sadly

wm 6.5.x is still crap...its still using the same kernel as 6.1 lets hope WM7 looks nothing like 6.5.x

I also was feeling hemmed in by 6.5 and so read somewhere on this forum how others had installed SPB Mobile Shell to improve the interface. A couple of days ago I did so and, wow, what a transformation! Makes me wonder why MS doesn't just buy SPB and build the new system patterned on their model. As far as I'm concerned, with some multi-touch tweaks it would be a winning interface.

There is NO WAY I could go back to 6.1 after using 6.5 for a few months, yep built on the same kernel but, made it finger friendly.

I really hope as well that WM7 looks nothing like 6.5.X

i honestly think microsoft wants all of us to switch to android or apple.
they dont wanna give up and quit because that'll make them look like the sore losers in "the game", at the same time they dont wanna invest too much money in this portion of MS.

what a friggin joke.

these clownheads better impress me next month, or im grabbing the iphone4g.
