Outlook 2007 icon: right under our noses

My other friend Aaron Parker (I have lots of friends, they don’t come cheap thou) has discovered that the new Outlook 2007 icon has been hiding in the Windows Vista betas for quite a long time.


Aaron found this in “MSSVP.DLL”, which is part of the Windows Search system files. It makes sense because the new Windows Search will not only find content in files, but also email, contacts, to-do lists, RSS feeds, calendar and notes, which of course is all part of the Office Outlook application.

It begs me to ask, how many more hidden gems can be found in the resource files of the Windows Vista betas? Start looking!
