    I read in many places that ms was planning a surprise on the final rtm (with the ui). Cant wait to see what they have done with it.

    Fake!

    It's fake. They won't do any changes, they don't have to.

    As far as I read, it could be possible, that they do a recompile before October, when the DVDs are in stores to include new bugfixes.
    But all changes between 16385 RTM and the possible 16386 will be available trough Windows Update...

    thats not likely at all. Not going to happen IMO. Final RTM has been announced as being available on the 24th and 6th etc. Final means final..

    You have any idea how bureaucratic MS's release process is? I've had the displeasure of working with MS dev teams on software revisions before and I can guarantee you that a spelling mistake would take at least 2 weeks to go through the proper channels. A change to the UI is outside any realm of possibility.

    No recompiles. But they might add more drivers to retail dvd.

    Bottom line is, this iso is the exact same build that will be installed on new computer preloaded with win7. They can't make any more changes to the build.
