Brandon Leblanc of the Windows 7 Team Blog makes its official with a quick look at the new Windows 7 packaging coming this fall. With this release, Microsoft has made it much simpler to open the case while still protecting its contents.
Simple, Clean and Easy To Open…
We approached the packaging for Windows 7 the same way we approached the product – by listening to what our customers told us they wanted: make it a simple clean design, easy to open, and reduce waste.
Customers told us they liked the big bold Windows logo and how it clearly communicates that it’s Windows 7. They like larger typefaces to make it easy to read and they like background colors for each edition to make it easier to differentiate between Windows 7 Home Premium all the way to Windows 7 Ultimate. In their own words, the “clean” design gives off a “fresh” feel.
