Ok, it hasn't leak yet but Wzor said that it is very likely the final RTM.

I just noticed that there is an explanation of the latest news from Wzor over on the UX Evangelist site

"The post says that Microsoft had lengthy voting and discussions about which build to make RTM (7260, 61 or 62), but in the end neither build got the required votes to pass. So they decided to take the 7263 build as a new candidate for RTM. A lot of the post after that is a Angels and Demons parody.

Further on, they clarify on their previous statements about the June 19 date. The gist of it, and the most important part, is that they state that the RTM can be expected after the 19th, and not on the 19th. They believe that the 19th is a key date, after which they possibly might find out which release was selected, and its technical info.

Since none of the first three builds managed to pass voting, it will be voted on again in two days, and this might repeat itself all the way up to July 13th. However, they're confident that it'll be decided before the end of June.

About whether the 7263 build will leak, they say that the number of people with access to it is currently extremely limited. All builds of all versions and languages are done on the same day, and that's a lot of data that none of the people at Microsoft will receive until automated testing has passed.

Even if this build leaks, before anything's "signed" there can be no guarantees that that'll be the final.

They say not to get any fantasies of it coming out on CONNECT or MSDN earlier at least another 2-3 weeks after the build is decided."

Define "extremely limited". I mean, how many people have access to it vs how many people have to vote on it?

I'm new to the Beta testing process so I don't know how it all works.
