Windows 7 SP1 x64 build 7601.21701
 
 

nah 95% of rumors are fake. 7100 wont be even near final, maybe 7150+ and yes they are making build/work day (no builds on sat/sun). However i noticed today that that some people already have build 7061 it was most likely released in to TAP program, but im not sure since usualy TAP builds are covered by winfuture. But someone else that usualy "having" builds from TAP program i noticed today that he is already using it.

Didn't Vista start out at build 6000? Maybe not.......but my Vista with service pack 1 is version 6 Build 6001. Windows 7 will be something like version 7 build 7161. I guess it really does not matter much. haha Just a little strange the way they do things. Maybe these are just "beta builds" and it will be 7000 or 7100 when finished.

Was XP not "build 5000" and Vista "build 6000" with service packs bumping it up 1 to "6001" for instance (for Vista)

Has this changed or is this how it's done. At this rate the final release will be "build 8081" or something. What's up?
NO.

Windows 2000 RTM was NT 5.0.2195

Windows XP RTM was NT 5.1.2600.

Yes -- Vista was NT 6.0.6000.

The official public beta for the Windows 7 was NT 6.1.7000. So, that number is already used.

Microsoft is currently up to Build 7061 or later -- with more to come before official RC at end of May. I predict the official RC or probably even RTM will be Build 7777. 7777 = Windows 7, get it?

Windows NT 6.1.7777 would be a nice ironic number for the mis-named "Windows 7" -- which is not the 7th Windows anything. It's "Vista R2", just like on the server side it's going to be Server 2008 R2. At least Microsoft is being refreshingly candid about the server twin to "Windows 7" and calling it by an honest name.

Both "Windows 7" and "Server 2008 R2" will share the same kernel (NT 6.1) and service packs, just like Vista/Server 2008 share the same kernel (NT 6.0).

@ChazzMatt

Very nice assessment. I agree with SoLoR in that RC branch beta builds will be around 7130 to 7150 towards the end of May. It makes a lot of sense that they might brand the actual RC as 6.1.7777. They are using NT 6.1 moniker so that developers can do a version check during beta code development. It will likely remain that way.

just found this nfo at windows 7 build 7061 out int the wild ? - Neowin Forums
Build 7061 was sent to Japan testers, it was about localized stuff. It's not a leak, it was a real (past) weekend bug bash that MS wanted to do.
people DO have 7061, it was reported on wzor a while ago but they don't bother leaking these builds out because there are not enough changes in it to make it a worthwhile leak
