7 Pro Build 7600.16385x64 [2.0 WEI]
Which build was a step backward from the previous?

My question to all you out there is: which new build seemed to be a step backwards from the previous build and why?

Poll included.

I think 7057 was pretty lame for adding this new logon screen, but that's just UI and cosmetics, I think every build has had significant improvements on the others.

Vista Ult64, Win7600

There's been so many it is hard to remember, but I do remember that when the 7100
was officially released, I was very disapointed, because I thought that the 7077 build that I had been using was far better in a lot of ways at the time.

7600.20510 x86

I voted 7022 because Readyboost was stripped out of that one. All of them have been great here, otherwise. Seems like steady improvement too.

Windows 10 Pro x64 x3, Ubuntu

It would have to be the Chinese 7106 as this was an actual step back from the 7077 build that was current at that time - being the equivalent of the 7076 build

It was also pretty badly hacked about, so was not a safe build to even download

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 RC X64

7022 for me felt worse than build 7000 did and as torrentg said the readyboost was stripped out.

Windows 7 SP1 x64 build 7601.21701

every new build have new perks. but in general i think each new build was also improvment over old one (except maybe 7137, but cant really tell after few hours of using it).

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

another vote for 7106, everything about that "leak" seemed wrong.

Windows 7 x64 (RTM via MSDN)

I voted 7077. This released introduced a weird kernel error that would BSOD and reboot my system. The error was Kernel-Power Event ID 41, which had something to do with the sleep/hibernate functions.
