[Leak] Windows 7 Milestone 2 build! (6.1.6608.1)

Post by mrpijey »

Here's something that popped up on our FTP, a brand new 32bit Milestone 2 leak of Windows 7! It was uploaded anonymously to us, but to whoever it was that put it there - we thank you for this rare build! We had the M1 and M3 builds but nothing from M2, but now we can test it and reveal all its secrets!

Code: Select all

Microsoft Windows 7 (''Windows 7'' 6.1.6608.1) (m2).rar
The ISO file weighs in at approximately 3.2GB (3GB for the RAR), it's been added to the FTP.

Enjoy!

Knew it was going to leak, but didn't see it happening to day. Unlocking the superbar in this build is a bit more trivial but fun to mess with.

As much as it annoys me, I guess it was only a matter of time, especially considering some people's behaviour over this build, and I won't miss having to clear up the mess of people just trying to cause division over this build, but still..

I agree. This was an ALPC-P build and I think someone wasn't authorized.

It's nothing like the 4039 leak, that was for completely different reasons. The only thing similar is that they were both builds that people had hoarded.

Geez, and I thought Microsoft were the ones coding and compiling these builds... my bad...

Seriously, sitting and moaning about leaks on a beta forum (especially leaks that are in no way unique to the leaker since they all come from the same source - Microsoft) is like sitting in a bar moaning about people drinking alcohol...

Microsoft didn't send out this build nor any other to just one person, so no one here can say that "this is my build".

This is a beta forum. We receive, install, dissect and discuss betas. If anyone doesn't like that then they have no business on this forum. And if anyone else (like you motherboardlove) run your own beta forum and don't want to risk any leaks then perhaps you shouldn't release any on your own site. But that would of course be contra productive, just like the bar not serving drinks. Since then it's not a bar anymore. Duh.

imho.

Fellas, enjoy the build and quit moaning.

What is ALPC-P?
Never leave home without PeerBlock, or you might not return at all.

You know you've been in the beta community too long when you feel the need to comment on the politics of a leak, rather than the contents

The leak was done anonymously, so keep any speculations or theories to yourselves.

Quite right .

Just enjoy the build and I expect some nice discussions about the contents of it and not of the source or nature of leaking betas (because this has been discussed so many times already so it's pointless).

Using this build awhile back, I found it to have the same DWM issues on my test machine as 6801 regarding DWM not rendering the Superbar with aero on with a GeForce 5200. The Superbar has yet to get any jumplist support besides IE. Nothing else in this build that we haven't already seen.

I can feel a flame war sparking over this...

Anyways, I'm glad to hear something this rare leaked, big thanks to who ever did leak it, I'm appreciative of the lengths the person probably went to do it.

You'd better say thanks to person from who mbl received 6608. I guess - mbl is the leaker.
