Windows 7 is Vista R2

Windows 7 is basically Vista. The proof? Just open a DOS prompt and you can clearly see that it says Windows 6.1.7000. Vista is Windows 6. So technically at this point of time, Windows 7 is just like R2 of Windows Vista.

More proof? Just run "winver":

There is a reason for this. Microsoft wanted to maintain compatibility with current programs throughout the beta. Presenting the OS string as 6.1 allows programs that check this on opening to continue to run as they would under vista.
