Default Windows 7 RC-7100 Leaked - 04-24-2009, 06:56 AM

Both x86 & x64 out. It's the real deal.

EDIT:
Lots of opinions flying like the ones below.

Evaluation copy only! This was handed out to developers and not the fully tested build that will be public in May!
And
It's "standard" for things to be marked as "evaluation" copies up until the final commerical release. That's the way it's been with every beta thing thus far, too.

You'll be waiting more as it has really slowed down since word spread overnight. I have pitiful download speeds and started around 1AM. It has trickled in slower than my connection and even slower now. :cry:

Ha. Yes, I'm currently pulling it in at a whopping 10kB/s. At this rate, I'll have it by Sunday afternoon.

A big plus for waiting until today. I just got a different link from a PM in another forum. I am @ 93% so it's all good.

2 things:

1) unless you got it from MS, you cannot trust it implicitly.

2) Whatever RC is to be released is likely already done and baked, it is given out to industry people in advance to let them play around for a few days to uncover any huge issues which might have been missed in internal testing. To be clear, 7100 is actually a build that was originally a lower number, which came through all testing with the traits that were desired, so it was then rebadged as 7100.


Is this leaked version 7100? Maybe, maybe not.

With all due respect, those of us interested in this & other builds already understand 1. Source for 2?

I guess you could say that I would be the source, if you are interested in any specific details feel free to PM me.

Install went smooth the second time around. I got a little too crazy with making my vLite iso too small. :roll:

More realistic vLite iso later and everything was running great. I have an external USB drive but find storing all my drivers, etcetera on my SD card is easier.

IMO, best build yet. Still the same damn fish though. :!: Most of the changes are under the hood.
