Default Microsoft to RTM Windows 7 this week? Build 7260 leaks

Earlier today Neowin reported that Windows 7
build 7232 had leaked. What a difference a few more hours makes, now 7260 has leaked and the Russian site Wzor claims that Microsoft
will build the RTM (release to manufacturing) build between June 15-19.

If Wzor is correct, and that's a big if and rumour, then we may see the final Windows 7 RTM build ready this weekend. Internal sources indicate that 7260 is still the latest build under the win7_rtm branch. Build 7260 carries the tag 7260.win7_rtm.090612-2110 and is an RTM escrow build meaning vigorous testing will commence to ensure this is the final code unless there are show stopper bugs. Folks inside Microsoft who wish to remain anonymous have also indicated that many people internally are growing tired and bored of the leaks and want development to conclude as soon as possible. I think everyone here at Neowin feels the same, lets see what the weekend brings.

Microsoft will officially release Windows 7 to the public on October 22.

They still have up the 7300 version which is like 5 months old.

Because that is the OFFICIAL beta build.

These others are all leaks.

It's not like Microsoft is not supporting updates through Windows Update.

Meh? 4 month RTM prior to street date sounds a bit early.
