the red border around the screenshot is a dead giveaway, it mysteriously thins out around the "Windows 7 blah blah blah" text, you may have it, but that isn't a screenshot of it...

I also call BS the Build Tag is all wrong. That is is not what the format would be like.

ok, red line is butchered... no big deal... i zoomed in 50x before i could find that problem... no idea why there is even a red border.
2 the build tag is not a leaked build, its a testing build...
may i repeat that my source is a compiler? the source compiles the code... therefore can also make the build tag show what ever it wants...

if you feel it is fake... good.

less people begging me for it later

The Build tag is too high from the taskbar.

All I'm saying is that the format of a Windows 7 Build is either:
Windows 7
For Testing Purposes Only. Build 6xxx
or
Windows ( R ) 7
Evaluation Copy. 69xx.winmain.xxxxxx-xxxx
Edit: I know your "source" compiles the code, however:
1. Why would your "source" give the build a different build tag.
2. Your "source" may have given you the build as a friendly gesture however he would not let you release a screenshot. That or either you released this wrongfully.
3. The Build Tag is too high like Alexsis has stated.

Another thing I notice is that both build 6933 and 6936 said Windows 7 not Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

In any case, if pizzaboy192 want to upload it, let him. We can justify the build ourselves if we have it.

Another obvious thing is that in build 6933 and 6936, every windows have the Sent Feedback right next to the minimize button.

It's quite sad really. If you're going to post a fake screenshot at least put some effort into it. I doubt there is any coincidence that the snipping tool border just happens to be borked right where the build number is, meaning it (the buld tag) was taken from another screenshot and haphazzardly pasted into your screenshot (of what is probably only 6801) partialy covering some of the snipping tool border in the process. One word, FAIL.

Sorry, you fail at deception. There is no such thing as a "custom compilation". The builds are done automagically on the buildfarms from the checked in trees. Everything is logged with timestamps, any errors and results before they are fed to the automated stresstesting facilities. The whole process is automated, even if it was possible to compile on a workstation it'd still take days. There are videos over on Channel9 describing the process with an interview of the PM in charge of the setups, links changed after their redesign so you'll have to dig it up yourself. Oh, and there is no position called "compiler".

It sounds more like an attempt at actual deception that failed. His "break" from BA is in reality him being called on his BS and running away with his tail between his legs. :)
