Windows 7: All You Need to Know About RTM...

"For me" I believe is the operative phrase here .

Do you restore your open folder windows when you logon? Give it a try with RC1 (or any other build before 7600, assuming you can find an option for it in Folder Options) and tell me the results, once you're able to recover. Do you have a Canon iPF6100 wide-format printer? Didin't think so. Do you use sleep / wake your system a lot? Do you transfer files or share printers with other networked PCs constantly? Is your PC overclocked?

Everybody has different systems and usage requirements, and what works perfect for somebody may not work at all for somebody else. Some of us are just getting there as far as a totally working environment in Windows 7. And since I really don't want to use my old XP x64 SP1 environment, like 7echno7im I want to get to the end of this thrill ride ASAP. I will probably stick with 7600.16384, as it is now working pretty much 100% for me. So far .

This is just a general post for information for people who are curious to see the latest info on the RTM from the source.

Many of us have preorders in place, but Oct 22 is a long ways out, relatively speaking. Why always assume the worst of people?

Sorry, my statement was not directed at this thread or your comments. Your post and its link are quite helpful and rational.

I was referring to another thread where words like "stupid", etc were being tossed about.

If people are testing different leaked versions to see if a problem specific to their setup is resolved, so be it, I would too.

But I have no illusions that this version or that version is the "final" RTM. The final RTM will be the one designated by MS in an official announcement.

I love the insinuation that everyone here is EITHER legitimate OR gets torrents.

Can't be both with you, huh?

I have both MSDN and a top-level EA. Regardless, I don't get into most betas without asking pretty please. And I haven't got the time anyway. So I pull the leaks. *shrug*

As for this original post - the blog - it's hilarious and just terrible really. I love the part about how "if you download a torrent of Windows 7 it is fake and has malware in it". Nice.

hmm that's not what I see, it says.

"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. And don’t believe everything you read on the Internet. When Windows 7 hits RTM, it will be announced here. 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."

Seems like a warning to me, and not what you are stating.

I didn't just assume the worst...that's why I asked at the beginning why there was so much excitement and to set me straight.

Again, that's why I was asking. I just didn't realize that people were clammering for the release because they had parts that were still broken that they needed fixed ASAP.

Really? I haven't seen EVEN ONE bogus copy. Every torrent I've downloaded has legitimately been Windows 7.

Quote:

Again - really? I haven't seen any yet. If they contain malware, it would have to be inserted by Microsoft, since they're just the ISO's straight from MS!

Sounds like he's saying all the builds currently out are either not final (which I believe) or full of malware (which is BS).

In the same way that MS's usual FUD is a "warning", sure.
