Windows 7: Build 7048 confirmed, Windows 7 RC1 on February 27?

19 Feb 2009   #11

7600 x86

do you think RC1 will be available to all beta testers? i'm not sure how things have worked in the past, this is my first experience with a beta OS...

Windows 10 Pro x64 x3, Ubuntu

The way I see things

All official testers will get a copy of RC1 - by official I mean those those who are Technet or MSDN members or on the customer feedback panel / program. some time later there will be a public download made available as with the first beta, this may or may not be a limited offer (2.5 d/l's million as last time - until they changed it), it will , iI think be time limited

I am not sure if those who registered for the public beta keys with MS will be notified of the availablility of RC1 - I am getting regular update from MS through that channel so it is possible

well i'm sure i'll get a copy one way or another. i was getting emails from MS for a while, but the last one was several weeks ago...

i think i'll stick to 'official' releases though. i am using Windows 7 as my primary OS at the moment, so i don't want to be reinstalling it too often!

Vista Ult64, Win7600

Thanks for that,I'm sure there would be a lot of people very "miffed" who have SEVEN installed on there machines already,if MS didn't notify them first before they announced it to the world.

Oh my

And I was really looking forward to it. Well, I'm still looking for a higher x64 build than 7000. No luck yet

So... The anxious waiting continues...

Windows 7 Home - 64 Bit

To All - For Giggles & Grins I just found Build 7022 and installed it. Ofcourse it was only 32-bit (and I was running Build 7000 64-bit) but it appears that Microsoft really does listen to the Feedback. The things I enjoyed about this build (1) The WEI has been upgraded and now even if there are changes in the evaluation done in 7 the WEI score is closer to what Vista 64 Ultimate said it was. (2) I had problems loading the ATI drivers in Build 7000 & now that is gone. I think this indicates communcation between ATI & Microsoft - I wondered about that.
(3) I was able to leave the UAC at a midrange setting and it performed to let me know I was effecting something in the software I might want to know about - not just creating a nussance. (4) I personally like to re-arrange the Startup Menu and the 'mess' that results after installing stuff... - there was enough security there but it was intuitive to use it or circumvent it - It seemed logical and gives the user the choice to use or not use. (5) I liked the "Libraries" interface and the ability to set it up so a single users Documents etc. can come up without an act of congress. (6) There is a single "Here are the devices place...?" I liked the layout and the way they did it. (7) Even though the 32-bit version only used ~ 3Gigs of the (value written on System page 2750 Meg) of the 4Gigs of Ram I have available, Build 7022 seemed snapier and "brighter" in responses of the software. I think we might get a real good product. Personally I don't like some of the things with Vista 32/64 but I can't sign-up that it 'sucks' or is bad. That's my opinion. God's Speed to all - Patrick C
