Written by Daniel

Has the RTM build of Windows 7 just leaked?

Jason Mick (Blog) - July 13, 2009 1:01 PM
DailyTech

As predicted, the 7600 Build of Windows 7 was reportedly released on July 13. Also as predicted, soon thereafter it was swiftly leaked out onto torrent sites. [Front page...]

Arrow Nope, build 7600 is NOT the Final Gold RTM build...

As you guys know I've been following very closely on the W7 development & builds as it goes along & I can tell you that the leaked builds are NOT the final RTM builds as development is continuing till the end of this month until final signoff on the GOLD RTM build.
Not just that, but new build leaks have surfaced since...

This is from the Windows 7 Blog with Brandon LeBlanc...


"I’d like to offer up a little insight into the “Release to Manufacturing” (RTM) for Windows 7.

Over the past week, there have been many rumors surrounding RTM.

We are close, but have not yet signed off on Windows 7. When we RTM you will most certainly hear it here. As we’ve said all along, we will RTM Windows 7 when it’s ready. As previously stated, we expect Windows 7 to RTM in the 2nd half of July."

Yeah, but it's just the language support that has to be finalized from what I can tell. I reckon that these builds are as close to finished as it gets, short of a need to use some obscure language on your box.

[Like Thai, maybe? ]

Biggest problem is until it's actually released, there is no way of verifying the integrity of what is being downloaded.

Yeah MS didn't have to make so hard to get a copy you can trust off a Bit Torrent!

(Somehow I don't think that what you were getting at Cliff!":O}

Wink Well shut my mouth! 7600 [16385] is the Final Gold RTM!

Seems MS was just throwing up smoke & camouflage until the final decisions where made public.
So for those still not sure, build 7600 [16385] is the final signed off Gold RTM build!

Two sources that verify this, both from Microsoft.

Windows 7 Has Been Released to Manufacturing

I am pleased to announce that Windows 7 has RTM’d! As I mentioned previously, RTM officially happens only after sign-off occurs. What happens is a build gets designated as a RTM contender after going through significant testing and meeting our quality...

From an employee of MS (below) for 12 years...about Steve Clayton


Windows 7 is Done: RTM announced

"I’m off to download the bits internally and upgrade my machines. The final geek kudos for Windows 7 is getting the RTM bits installed before you buddies. Sad but true. The final build number for Long and others is 7600.16385.090713-1255."
