As I said, some might be real, some might not be. The one that updated the kernel EXE is most likely just a "fake" test update (due to its KB #), and that's the one giving you that shiny version number that you seem so mesmerized by.

Yeah, it shows that on the 1st page of this thread. I don't know whether these are test files or not. Maybe some are...maybe some are not...maybe they are all test files...it is all hearsay and conjecture at this point. Be patient and wait until there is actually a legitimate release from MS through TechNet, then maybe we will find something factual out.

The 9xxxxx updates do look like real updates, though. The most interesting one is KB973751, which updates the setup. This is an update that doesn't do anything on a live system and makes sense only as slipstreamed onto the install DVD. It could be possible that Microsoft will release DVDs with this particular hotfix slipstreamed in (it won't be the first time that they had done something like that; e.g., releasing XP "SP2B" images to MSDN that are basically SP2 images with a hotfix slipstreamed). Note that none of this changes the fact that RTM is RTM and them slipstreaming a hotfix into the official media doesn't change RTM's status as RTM.

No, and there will probably not be until August 11 at the earliest.

I installed these updates and the build string has changed as mentioned above. You can find the locations at the 'My Digital Life' forum.
I think they fixed the monitor off/sleep problem. So far so good??
