Further to last entry about Windows 7 RTM; another build has been compiled by Microsoft and is already making rounds on the Internet.
Windows 7 64bit
Microsoft has kept things under a tight lid about RTM for some reason. The only thing they mention is, at the end of July. They are not telling what stage of RTM they have reached. Insiders are telling the RTM is close, possible RTM builds 16384 and 16385 already compiled.
The web has been buzzing since last few weeks leading to the expected RTM of Windows 7 in July. According to Microsoft, the RTM will be delivered in last two weeks of July but many blogs have cited their sources saying that the RTM is on track for 13th July and will be distributed in phases from 13th and onward through MSDN/Technet etc.
Some reports also showed up pointing to a show stopper activation bug which could delay 13th July RTM date but I think we are past that now. Windows 7 RTM [full final version in other words for the noobs] has been compiled by Microsoft and the version is, 6.1.7600.16384.win7_rtm.090710-1945. I think it’s past the “possible RTM build” now because screenshots have showed up on Internet as well as “Setup.exe” of Windows 7 RTM build 6.1.7600.16384.win7_rtm.090710-1945 which confirms the said build exists through presence of a Digital Signature by Microsoft.
