Windows 7: Windows 7 build number "changed"

They are probably not fully tested at this point which is why they have not yet shown up on windows update and some of them may simply be "test" updates which are not necessary anyway. The safest course would be to just wait for windows update. Of course I just went ahead and installed them and haven't noticed any ill effects so far but I would recommend just waiting for them to show up on windows update.
+1 Why risk it, wait until they are offered through WU...

btw ... nice sig there...

Thanks. Your sig was actually the inspiration for it. The only thing mine lacks is the 3d shadow effect around the edges.

Thanks Tews. I installed the rtm on my laptop with the updates slipstreamed into the iso. My build is still 16385, my WEI went down from 3.8 to 3.5, and my USB ports are cutting out often. I will try one of Zidane's lite builds later and see what happens.

I will wait for tomorrow. If members from msdn and technet gets the same build as we do then I will slipstream them.
I think there will be more updates coming this way..

After endless fustration and countless restarts for the last day and a half, my laptop now works perfectly. I did nothing to fix it! I went to Microsoft's help page for USB issues, then decided to try copying files between my external hard drives one last time before doing anything. All the USB ports have been working fine for the last few hours after cutting out every five minutes or so since yesterday. My WEI score went from 3.5 to 3.7 and Aero works during the tests again. The machine is running great, so I am leaving it alone for awhile. I don't know what changed, I did nothing, and I don't have automatic updates installed, I have it on the Let Me Choose option. I will try running another WEI test later to see if I can get the score back up to 3.8 like it was in the original RTM without the slipstreamed updates.
