There's a difference between leaked and released (to manufacturing).
This build might be the RTM but it's not official announce yet.
We will see what happens this week.

I am sorry, but I have to say this:

It must be nice to go through life being smarter that anyone else. That is what I am reading from some of those who are posting to this thread. Not at any time have I said that this is the final RTM, only that it is a leaked RTM build. I have shown the winver window indicating that it is an RTM build, and still there are those who just can't believe this is a leaked version. So, to those who continue to indicate in some form or another that I am stupid and do not know that this is not a final release may you continue to be great computer experts, and help others who aren't.

" and still there are those who just can't believe this is a leaked version"

We do believe, most people on this thread are probably running the same version as you are (including me), this thread remains useless.

Lee,

It's a nothing really; I think the bones were being picked out of you saying it's the rtm etc, and the misleading thread title maybe.

Hey we all running rtm builds in one guise or another....non of us are running rtm gold/retail or whatever we want to call it...

Just enjoy, and await the next rtm build leak, and wait for the news of final

As usual, there seems to be a lot of 'guesswork' about RTM, yadda, yadda....

No-one know if this is RTM, but who cares? Just enjoy the software people.

I've been using 7600 for the past 3 days, and this is easily the best build so far.
A good RTM 'candidate'? Definitely!! Quick, rock solid, and they fixed 'Restore previous folders at logon'.

I've activated using the 'dubious' activation method, but backed up the 2 essential files, just in case.

We could talk about build numbers, RTM branches etc, until the cows come home (as is every other forum).

No one knows, and I for one, don't give a s**t!!!

Everyone seems to be an expert on this. It pisses me off a bit, when a person finds out a bit of new info or asks a 'noob' question. All of a sudden the 'experts' scream 'fake' or flame the poster. The only way to be become an 'expert' IS to ask questions. I wish that a lot of the others would realise that and keep their acid comments to a minimum.
'Experts' don't run endless virus scans, hash checks or continually back up their 'precious' data. My 'precious' data is nowhere near my PC's hard drive.
Software crashes and corrupts (Rule number 1).

I've worked in application development for over 20 years, and it seems to be a real problem with the IT industry, as a whole. It seems to be full of half truths, buzzwords or outright bull****! (and bull****ters!!!)

Until this 'psuedo' RTM is truly RTM (ie- 'On the shelves') we will never know....

I'm using this OS and it works well... Simple as that.

Easy does it folks.... take a breath ... or two...

What happened to referencing the leaked versions as RTM Candidates?

At least that made it reasonably clear that the leaked version might be the actual RTM or it might not...

Now we have RTM Gold Code? Is there a bronze and silver too?

The RTM will be the one MS says is the RTM. The rest is all fun and games.... it is fun ....right?

It is out and that is the truth.
No offense Lee if you read any of the other forum threads you would know

sub build number 16384 is not RTM

Already 16385 should leak soon and that is still no guarantee it is RTM

Well, while it does restore the disk structure the way that it was in the backup, you could easily use disk management to resize the partitions after the fact. I'm not 100% sure that with disk management that you can move a partition....but if not, I know for a fact that gparted can do it and it's free....so it's one of my tools of choice.
