Windows XP Mode - Install and Setup

That was finished once the RCs were on and running well in order to look over the new feature seen with 7. And you know just about everyone will be booted into the RCs following May 5th!

Answer : "Because it's there".

Incidentally if the hashes are the same then the build WILL be identical to torrent ones.

However some people *might* be more comfortable with "an official release".

Incidentally if MSDN subscription keys are different then when doing a windows update they might get different updates etc -- I don't know of course.

I assume however in testing an RC meant for "Public Consumption" this would cause a bit more problems in maintenance as you'd have 2 different streams for the same product.

I'll be keeping my 7100 until either

a) the initial feeding frenzy on the public servers will have died down (probably after a week or so).

b) Somebody comes up with a "show stopping" or major difference between the "Official Leaked" build or the actual "official" build.

I'm quite sure mine is 100% genuine in any case .

Agree with jimbo45 100%

I recall years ago being a member through Volume Licensing and there was something that precluded using the subscription as a means of having legitimate licenses on nothing more than home computers.
Any ideas? Thanks.
