Latest Windows 7 Leak Claims to be RTM
Leaked builds of Windows 7 hitting file sharing networks are claiming to be "very, very possible FINAL RTM build."
More than one piracy scene group today released iso disc images that bear the build string and filename "7600.16385.090713-1255_x86fre_client_en-us_Retail_Ultimate-GRMCULFRER_EN_DVD.iso."
It's unclear how different this is from build 7600 that leaked onto the internet last Sunday, though the filename indicates that it was compiled on July 13, 2009 at 12:55 p.m., making it a few days newer than the one previously leaked.
Microsoft did follow up with a comment on July 13, saying, "Just because a single build may have 'leaked' it does not signal the completion of a milestone such as RTM."
Furthermore, Microsoft's Windows Communication Manager Brandon LeBlanc warned users against using leaked builds of Windows 7. "As always, beware of what you download. There are many bogus copies of Windows 7 floating around the Internet. More often than not, they contain a rather nice malware payload," he said.
"When Windows 7 hits RTM, it will be announced here," LeBlanc continued. "Until that happens, any builds you are likely to see on the web are either not the final bits or are laced with malicious code."
EDIT: Windows 7600.16385 build fixes Windows 7 build 7600.16384 of IE8 a Bug.

read bitches about seeders,
read messages from those who are going to sleep,
complaints about less than 1803 Mbs,
see 389 requests for PM's,
see 387 messages saying "PM sent",
then go thru the inevitable "Is this the real thing" type questions,
with the inevitable "Yes/No/I don't think so/I really believe it is/ Microsoft says, etc/,
read the posts complaining about the driver-problems,
link ref is from Thailand and I can't read it, WZOR site is down/can't log-in/can't read Russian/posts not up to date, MS warns about endangering your computer with infected .iso files,
then the usual 'Robinski' .iso versus the 'HamLing' mods as 26 RAR files,
What do I do with the 26 RAR files/How do I make a bootable paper-clip,
and all the other usual questions that follow...
The ones I love the most are the: "I just installed the iso and this/that doesn't work",
no mention of x86, 64bit, Robinski, the Chinese version, which torrent was DL, what the buildnbr was, no file-names, file-sizes, file-dates, etc.
Nah, it's gonna be lots of fun, when the "real RTM" is 'leaked'...
235 pages of the same old stuff...
How in the heck we get thru it, I'll never know....
