Windows 7: Windows 7 RTM Is No Go 7600 Not the Gold Build

Windows 7 RTM Is No Go 7600 Not the Gold Build

Windows 7 has not been released to manufacturing, Microsoft reveals, as reports to the contrary surged beginning with the end of the past week, and continuing on Monday, July 13th. In this context, 7600 is not the gold build of Windows 7, or at least not the full build string: 6.1.7600.16384.win7_rtm.090710-1945 of the latest leaked development milestone of Windows Vista's successor. The Redmond company reiterated previously announced plans to release Windows 7 to manufacturing in the second half of July 2009, with the deadline close to the end of the month, as I reported the past week right here on Softpedia.

We are close, but have not yet signed off on Windows 7. When we RTM you will most certainly hear it here. As weve said all along, we will RTM Windows 7 when its ready. As previously stated, we expect Windows 7 to RTM in the 2nd half of July, revealed Brandon LeBlanc, a communications manager on the Windows Client Communications Team.

Sure enough, Windows 7 Build 6.1.7600.16384.win7_rtm.090710-1945, finalized on July 20, 2009, is leaked and available for download in the wild, and its validity is undeniable. Still, this is not the gold development milestone of the operating system. In fact, development is still in full swing, with Microsoft tending to the platform's localized versions.

BILL VEGHTE: Good morning. How is everyone doing out there? (Applause.) All right. You watch that video, it's such an exciting time. It is such an exciting time. This morning we will release Windows 7 to manufacturing, and we write that next chapter, we go after that opportunity. And when you think about the story of Windows, and you think about that story, and you all have written that history. You think about Windows, and over the world you've got over a billion people, over a billion people, depending on what you do. More people speak the language of Windows than speak the English language. And that opportunity, and that value, that incredible simplicity, that broad a set of choices, that's what you've done.

What about this ?http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/e...09keynote.mspx

so, without sounding dense, 7600 isnt RTM?

or is it the build that will be RTM, once all the LP are done and dusted?

I thought i wouldnt have to rebuild my machine anymore for a while, after installing 7600 last night

The current 7600 leak is an RTM build but not the final RTM. RTM is more of a process than a particular build.

So although its in the RTM branch, its not the "Gold" code that is then not changed between now and pressing the DVD's?
