    How do you like it? I tried the beta and liked it but went back to Vista.

    The leaked builds keep coming... this is a post RC1 build which in theory should have further enhancements/fixes though at the same time because it's not meant to be widely used by the public as the RC, debugging tools could compromise performance, or so it's commonly believed.

    For most people wanting to try 7 early, the official RC1 will fit them best.

    I spy Utorrent!! You couldn't have possibly installed installed utorrent on first, then magically find a build 7140 lying on your lawn :confused:.

    How is it? Any difference?

    I need to get ahold of it, every build I ran since the public beta worked fine for me. Then the RC comes along and suddenly I have no sound on my cable TV (through a hauppage pvr 250). WTG Microsoft :(

    Rofl...i'm too lazy to check it up.

    I notice photoshop is one of the first programs on it, I wondered why, but I just ignored it xD.

    techno, I haven't personally verified it, but I'm pretty sure your claim that 7140 is fake is invalid itself.

    Just because you can't get it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. There is and has been an entire scene around getting builds of a new OS. In actuality it has only recently became somewhat public. It really used to be a pretty "underground" thing where only a few of us got it, and those that knew people. So now, consider youself privilidged I guess. Maybe not, maybe now Microsoft is smarter and making more people "test" it , when previously it was just us enthusiasts.

    edit: in fact, if we are getting edited for a MS release, then it is exactly what I said above.

    As far as I know, build 7137 is the latest distro, but the fork path is confusing so maybe the 7140 is from a different fork O.o
