Released to manufacturing follows weeks of rumour and speculation on when Microsoft would unveil that it has finished Windows 7. 7.7600.16384.090710-1945 is the potential final build number and we’re still expecting the company to announce the finalisation of Windows 7 at the annual Worldwide Partner Conference on Monday providing there are no last minute recompiles.
Windows 7 has been in development since mid to late 2008 and build 7600 will mark the end of the beta phase and on to servicing and then general availability on October 22.
There’s no confirmation yet and we can be sure that some copies, if this is true, will contain trojans. Nothing more to report at this stage.
