Rumor smash: Windows 7 build 7048 does not yet exist

I have confirmed with a Microsoft employee that build 7048 does not yet exist, and that development on the RC branch has not yet started. Speculation on a new build keeps mounting as testers still have not received anything beyond build 7000. The original story is below.

Windows 7 Build 7048 x64

Excellent news slimey!

I'm excited to try out the polished builds myself

If they really want to make a killing in market sales for this years Christmas, moving this forward as quickly as they can is really a bold (or foolish) move for M$ to reassure partners that M$ will be able to deliver RTM just in-time for the OEMs to start churning out holiday supplies to the market.

Thanks for the update Slimy, that's great news but it's a shame there has been no x64 leaks about sine build 7000, I hope someone gets one out soon.

As they've gone to the RC build tag it should be that all the known Beta issues have been addressed so looks like the public RC shouldn't be too long
