No idea of the believability but some of you might want to look into it...

The part that makes me question the validity is the desktop tag is "For testing purposes only." where 7022/7048/7057 and 7068 (and basically every build shots have appeared of since the beta) have all been marked with the "Evaluation copy." tag.

I'm going to go out on a limb here, and say that the SQL lab gets SQL-enhanced builds that are intended for SQL use only, hence the testing build.

Actually, I have a question - are the debug builds different in regard to what it says - Evaluation or Testing?

What I noticed is that all the public builds: 6801 and 7000 all said "For testing purposes only" and all the leak build 6780, 6936, 7022, 7048, 7057, and 7068 all said "Evaluation copy"

Which would make it even odder for an internal to be "For testing...".

You're wrong. 6780, 6936, 7022 and 7048 were "For testing purposes only" builds.

Yes I am completely wrong. I could have sworn 7048 had said eval copy but oh well. 7068 and 7057 however did/do say evaluation... so I'm still slightly right on that the latest ones have been tagged "Evaluation Copy" in line with RC status, thus making the 7070 one a bit questionable.
Too... many... builds! ;)

The earliest the RC will be out is April 10 or May. Besides 7068 has leaked and there wouldn't be much difference between 7068 and 7070.
