Windows 7: Windows 7 reliable enough to release?

Windows 7 reliable enough to release?

Earlier today, I read about the latest leaked build of Windows 7 to appear on BitTorrent. The text on the desktop suggests that build 7057 is part of the release candidate branch. With the exception of some new wallpapers and default account pictures, it appears to be mostly unchanged from build 7048, which means most of the RC changes are checked in, and it’s now crunch time in Redmond.

XP/win7 x86 build 7127
 
 

wouldnt the security update for 7 be included in 57? This would be ONE huge change... may not be many eye popping changes for a bit.... how much can MS revamp the OS by swapping out places or changing names of things to render a new beta build, some of this is just out right silly if you ask me.... 57 shoulda been the next wrap after the public... instead of 4 wraps in 2.5 months

also, has no ONE mentioned how much ram that 7 tends to use? it seems as tho the more you keep putting in there, the more 7 keeps wanting to use. For example on that read, guy has 4gig, and only 875 free???? omg is all i can say

7068 64 bit + XP Pro
 
 

I'm still using Build 7000 and it is easily stable enough for me to use it for my
everyday operating system. I dual boot with XP Pro but only ever boot XP to update the AV and AntiSpy programs.
I am using the 64 bit version with 2 gigs of ram and have no problems at all, even when recoding AVI's etc .
Most reviewers seem to have an agenda or a need to be noticed . I can't be bothered with most of them, and prefer to try things for myself.

Then it's using it right. RAM is supposed to be used by the OS, and when applications need it, the OS gives it to them. That's the beautiful thing about Vista and 7

Windows 7 RTM x86/x64
 
 

I see a lot of problems with Windows 7 and the Media Center and 7048 makes my wifi card crash about once a day. Have to do a "no-shutdown" power-off.

When watching the Media Center and it switches channels for a recording, the "info" screen will not update and it makes you think you are recording a different show.

WTV Converter seems ALMOST stable. I made a script for DVRMS Toolbox that you can find on that site to automatically convert the files and scan them for commercials for removing them while watching or totally removing them.

Man, that was well said. There is not much sense to adding more memory if you're not going to use it.

On Topic, build 7057 is working great for me but it's not ready for RC IMHO.
