Windows 7: The leaked Windows 7 build 7025

The leaked Windows 7 build 7025

There has been little talk of Windows 7 builds after the leak and public release of the first beta build (7000) earlier this month, but Microsoft has definitely been busy. What many seem to overlook is that build 7000 was compiled on December 12, 2008, at 2:00PM. Since then, there have been many other builds compiled, including 7003, 7004, 7012, 7015, 7016, and 7025. The last one, which leaked over the weekend (though it is much harder to find than 7000), has the following build string number: "7025.0.x86fre.winmain.090120-1850," meaning it was compiled on January 20, 2009, at 6:50PM. That makes it only a week old, which means it is quite new, though of course it is not the newest.

Build 7025 incorporates quite a few bug fixes, as well as a few minor visual changes to built-in programs like Paint and Windows Media Player. It also comes with an updated build of Internet Explorer 8, as you can see in the screenshot above. If you're scratching your head about the apparent return of the Quick Launch toolbar, don't. You can enable the Quick Launch toolbar in Windows 7 with a registry tweak, so in all likelihood, the user who took this screenshot (more at PCBETA) made the appropriate change in the registry beforehand. It's unlikely that Microsoft plans to include the Quick Launch toolbar on by default in Windows 7.

With new builds do you have to reinstall the entire OS, or can you get "updates" to your current build?

Really I want to see how IE8 RC1 is, but it is not available for Win7.

You have to reinstall the whole OS, and even if you didn't have to, I would recommend that you do (none of that upgrade nonsense, especially with betas).

I dunno, I would recommend checking out the upgrade feature with 7 atleast once, it's totally different from the others. It will actually reinstall your apps unlike before when it just replaced the files. It's a beta, get the whole feel for it!

From Vista to 7, not from a 7 beta build to another 7 beta build.

People have been upgrading from Vista x64 to 6801 x64 to 6936 x64 to 7000 x64 so i expect you will be able to do it with the next build as well.
