Windows 7 Build 7106 leaked earlier this week and there was a huge amount of excitement around the forums because of the obvious large gap between 7077 and 7106; seems like a lot of builds!
The truth is, they’ve just branched the code base this week; checking out build 7076, and relabelling it as 7106, ready to work on towards the RTM build, while 7076, 7077 onwards, will be polished to ultimately be released as the RC (probably at build 7100?).
So.. 7106 is actually 1 day older than 7077. Anyone thinking about rushing out and sourcing a chinese iso and a language pack can probably hold out for either the RC or a later RTM branch build; possibly with some of these exciting new surprises??
Let's talk about it.
Head on over to Twitter and let's talk more.
