Windows Despite the success of the Windows 7 beta, which got leaked before it was officially released and had several deadline extensions, Microsoft isn't exactly sitting still. The beta build, with build number 7000, was built on December 12th, 2008, so that leaves enough room between then and now for several newer builds. One such build got leaked this weekend, and it contains some minor changes compared to the beta build.

Sorry but the fact what someone run a build script or fixed a bug is not a news.

Are you going to inform us also about Linux kernel builds? ;)

Or maybe we should publish here diffs of Windows and Linux specification?
(this probably will be more interesting)

In case you haven't noticed, it's a horrendously SLOW news day today. I mean, I had to make a frakking item about a series of videos showing Alaska landscapes.

It's just one of those days.

Tracking Linux kernel builds wouldn't make sense because then you'd have to track all major distributions.
It would make more sense to track the source release distributions. For example, I would like OSnews to once in a while announce Linux kernel minor version source update releases for example when was released. But its no big deal.

Regarding the pirated builds of windows, this is just a phase. Eventually, things will cool down with windows 7 and I hope Microsoft will try to limit the number of illegal pirated leaks especially since Windows 7 does seem to be an improvement.
