Default Windows 7 Build 7068 x86/x64

I just found out build 7068 has been leaked.

http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=751774

Now downloading the x64 one, hopefully it fix the boot and installation setup long delay issues on AMD machines.

Typing this from new Windows 7 build 7068. Wow the setup installation went very smoothly in about 25 mins and then it boot very faster than Vista. Plus I noticed build 7068's Windows Update is blaze fast search and updated stuff when I log into desktop that didnt happened in build 7057.

Very impressive with this build 7068, it fixed all the bugs I experienced with build 7057.

what do you guys burn your disc at? I hate when I'm installing a new build and it sits on a blue screen or what ever screen for like 5 mins before continuing installing.

I burned it maximum speed and it installed fine. 7068 is pretty damn fast.

I have an issue with firefox, occured in 7057 too but I am not sure if its just me or not. On a fresh instance of firefox when i go to download something and I click save file, it takes like 4-5 seconds for the downloads window to pop up. After that, when you go to download something, it'll initiate instantly with no pauses.

On a fresh install, I never had that issue but after a while it came up again, so I am not sure what is wrong here.
