    LOL - I actually used it for about a year before the 7 beta was launched - been using the 7 beta and now RC since... 7 is what MS needed badly. :cool:

    Looks fake to me.

    1, Why would MS suddenly jump to build 7600

    2, The setup launchers date is 12th July, while the build string is 10th July

    could be that it was extracted from the ISO today? I know when i copy a file, the copy's creation date is the date that the copy was made, not the original. Just a though... It would make sense for MS to complete the RTM on a Friday though - then they got all weekend to celebrate and get ready to annouce it on Monday.

    EDIT: It says Date Modified, so maybe he extracted the ISO onto a computer today prior to burning the files to a disc (people do some strange shit IMO)

    Even if that is true, when they are trying to prove something true, you would make sure that matched at least, and show the digital signature.

    I'm sorry I really do think this is fake :ohwell:

    We will know for sure in about 24 hours.

    EDIT: I hope the RTM pops up on MSDN soon...

    The RTM will only show up for plus members I believe unless you opted for the Plus Membership?

    I cant wait for it to be official, even if not officially available until October.

    But my last final thing which makes me think fake, is that every official public release version from microsoft is written as:

    6.1.7000.0

    6.1.7100.0

    So why would MS release the RTM with an extra build string?

    Surely if its real it would be:

    6.1.7600.0

    rtm was supposed to be actually compiled on the 10/11th, and released to manafacturers on the 13th, and then on MSDN a week later

    Just remember the Beta or RC keys won't work for the RTM at least from above posts.

    Easy, and non hacking/cracking way round that.

    You run "slmgr /rearm" in your last few days of the 30 day period, up to 3 times, gives you 120 days to use Windows 7 without a key. Just enough time between now and October 22nd :D

    Imho fake ,too big jump for a build number.
    http://www.windows7center.com/ has proven to be reliable source from since pre-beta builds, and there is no info of 7600 build.

    I use Windows7news.com a lot, and nothing is on there yet either.

    I do call BS on this. :ohwell:

    Oh, it's not mine :rolleyes: I just got a good friend that just so happens to be an IT - I haven't looked to see what kind of account it is to be honest, but nearly all downloads on there are available. I'm using ForeFront Client Security for example, for "testing and development" mind you ;)

    I hope. ^_^ I will wait until MS posts it over to MSDN though. Haven't the post RC builds improved performance even more? I seem to recall someone saying it was, but not for sure.
