    It was mentioned by Steven Sinovsky at an MS Speech today...

    "7600.16385.090713-1255 is confirmed as the official RTM build, according to Steven Sinofsky "today after all the validation checks were met, we signed off and declared build 7600.16385 as RTM.""

    No, you're wrong. The build number will be kept in the RTM.

    then all we're waiting for is an official iso compiled by MS with correct md5sums/sha1.

    Um arent the original 16385 files i turned into an iso from microsoft themselves anyways? Why do you need an official iso that has the stupid README.TXT in that tells you about the ISO system??

    Well the obvious answer would be that by having the correct .iso, you'll be assured of having an operating system that hasn't been tampered with by a third (or fourth) party.

    Well, if nothing is wrong with it, it works fine, no antivirus software reports anything etc etc etc etc etc, what would be tampered with?I've played games, installed plenty of apps, run many tests including hijackthis, multiple anti-v such as avg, trend, eset, run spyware S&D, and many other apps. nothing reported. I'd like to know what would be tampered with it?

    Ever heard of a rootkit.......access as system administrator.......game over.
    Easily hidden from anti-virus programs.

    Well it's not fake; it's just not genuine. It's an .ISO that someone graciously made by cobbing together a disc image of the real deal, with the bootable portion of W7 RC 7264. I say "graciously" because without folks like WZOR, we wouldn't get to play around with this cutting edge stuff. As Mr. EclipseSin pointed out, there's most likely nothing wrong with it, but you can never be certain now, can you?

    uhh yea... most antiv look for rootkits with signature or heuristics based detection now-a-days. were not in the 80's anymore. while they can still remain hidden, it's unlikely these files have one in....

    Nope. 16285 has all build 7600 16285 files. No 7264 bits are left (except maybe some files MS kept and changed the version in details). Unless you got the early build before the official en-US files were leaked.
