Windows 7: New Build Mania

New Build Mania

I don't really have a reason, but I keep seeing 3 new release threads a day with 500 comments requesting links...

You don't need to download every version, especially since most don't have major changes. You end up spending a lot of time updating and having programs break from being exposed to constant upgrades, creating artificial "bugs".

If you want to be helping testing, look more for new beta Win7 driver and program releases, not Win7 builds. If you just want Win7 for normal use, find a stable version and stick with it for a while. Most of them are pretty stable... if you notice that one release especially has a lot of changes, or fixes a bug you have, then by all means upgrade, but otherwise don't be downloading the next build while installing one.

Do your part and test drivers and programs. Those make up the bulk of Windows issues.

yes, i agree to this. There is no point in upgrading our OS to every build that MS releases especially when there are so minimal changes.

stop talking crazy!

however i do agree 500 posts asking for links are annoying, everyone can use 2 or 3 basic searchers (like if its not on mininova/tbp you try bing! (or google)) and find it them self :<

do you consider your build you are runing is compleatly bug free? if you do fine, then you dont have reason to update, however i dont and i update in hope of 2 bugs i have gets fixed that are kinda annoying if they stay in RTM (and are actualy not some bad driver/software fault).

Yes, i completely agree with you Solor, if you indeed have bugs in your build and want a good riddance of it, then it makes, but for me RC 7100 has been very stable indeed without a problem

There are a lot of build junkies here (myself included) LOL. The advantages of running with the latest build is that your running closer to RTM, meaning that there will be less changes between the build your running & the final release. That will allow for you to guage what issues (if any) may still be present when Windows 7 is released to the general public.

Such guaging will also help you overcome these issues easier and sooner than if you just wait for the release & find out that all your favorite games & apps don't work or need tweaking in order to function 100% in Windows 7 after spending $300. <- ficticious figure but probably close to the mark

I'm in recovery

Personally, by the time I hit 7100/7201, 99% of the show stopping bugs for me had been resolved and I finally had a 'working' OS I could live with. I actually started to use the OS

I could then easily ask myself "Do I really need to try a new build, when this current installation is nice and stable?"

Instead of a resounding "yes!", the answers started to become "No. You can skip this one".

Although I certainly still get the itch

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
