Windows 7 SP1 RTM leaks to torrent sites, Microsoft silent

By on January 20, 2011, 2:58 PM
Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 has hit the Release to Manufacturing (RTM) milestone. The build reportedly went final on January 18, 2011, according to Techarp.

The warez group WZ ZUKO has already started distributing this build to various torrent sites. It's important to note that Microsoft has yet to confirm that SP1 has hit RTM, so there are no details regarding a roadmap for the Release to Web (RTW) plan. "Microsoft has not released Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, though we are on track for a Q1 release, as we previously announced," a Microsoft spokesperson said in a statement.

Here are the details of the reportedly final RTM build:

One way or another, very unexciting Service Pack this time around.

Agreed, a testament to the quality of Windows 7. On any other Windows version, a service pack would be a much awaited event not only for the new features added but especially for the stability and bug fixes applied to the original release.

Now the mad rush for businesses to purchase a copy since they can tell there boss it has Service Pack 1 in it now. LOL

Guest said:

blimp01 I believe you say this for the RC version and not RTM.

blimp01 said:

Meh I think Microsoft leaks this stuff on purpose because it tempts more people to try it out.

Guest said:

I don't care much to install a leaked RTM build.

This is a fake service pack! MS addressed a warning message for potentially unstable XP-based machines when a fake preview of XP SP3 came into surface a couple of months before the final build of XP SP3 being released in 2006.

Installing this "fake" SP1 RTM build can cause serious damages to your computer, forcing you to format and reinstall the OS.
