And they are likely proud but let's hope they concentrate on the content instead of the packaging.
I recently bought Visual Studio 2008 where the packaging is over done for what was inside. The entire package could easily fit in 10% of the space since it's all of 2 slips of paper and a DVD.
Getting the new package open the first time can be frustrating if you never did that before. I've seen one person take it to a band saw to get inside.

They just released the visuals (and a hands-on look) of the new Windows 7 packaging.
