‘Blue Badge’ Unlocks All Locked Features in PDC Build

Last week, we reported on a crude hack which allowed users of build 6801 of Windows 7 (the build handed out at PDC) to use a slightly botched version of the new taskbar. Rafael Rivera created a new tool that enables many more protected features, such as gestures, panning, and desktop slideshow. It’s as simple as the click of a button, and also works on Windows 7 installations which already had the previous hack applied. I can confirm that the tool works.
