This morning, Moscow time (in the United States was the evening) signed gold code release to manufacturers Windows 7 RTM:

Even last night (16 hours for MSK 16.07.2009 year), we told you about the preliminary results of a vote on the final "gold code" Windows 7 INTERNATIONAL and wondering what in the vote cast 24 votes against discussing 6.1.7600.16385.090713 build - 1255.,

and now we see that those votes "against" vote and have now withdrawn the decision taken unanimously, as we have all of you and congratulations.
Continuation of the article should be ..

In a few hours Microsoft will officially confirm that Windows 7 RTM milestone has been reached and even better it´s build 6.1.7600.16385.

Full buildstring: 6.1.7600.16385.win7_rtm.090713-1255

This build already leaked (both x86 and x64) enjoy :). (no untouched iso's, but they will probably leak in a few days)

With Windows 7 Microsoft did a step in the right direction, i'm sure Windows 8 will offer some more interresting features.

That was fast. Vista was only released 2 years ago and has not picked up mainstream use here in the Philippines. I'll probably skip Windows 7.

I think Microsoft will make another assembly to straighten the build number.

what's to straighten?
Vista's build number was 6000.16386.061101-2205
and xp's was 2600.something.
Now windows 7 is 7600.16385.win7_rtm.090713-1255, this is the final number

Well, does the installer let you select different editions if the serial is not provide by default?

No, that's only activated when you delete the ei.cfg file inside the ISO.

Could somebody please explain what the numbers in the build number mean? (I don't really understand a lot about the RTM sign-off and that kind of stuff, this is the first time i really heard about it).

Nice that Windows 7 is finished. Hope Windows 8 will be nice, and as interesting as longhorn.

Does somebody know if Windows 8 is going to be a minor or major version?

Well, it will be sooner.
I heared that it will be on MSDN/Technet in a week of the signoff.

The Official Windows Blog has this to say about MSDN/Technet releases...
Quote:
MSDN & TechNet Subscribers: Subscribers will be able to download the final version of Windows 7 a few weeks after we announce RTM.

Either way, he was talking about a leak of Windows 8, not the 7 RTM - the RTM's already leaked in both flavors.

Vista was released 2 and a half years ago to the public and it went RTM in late 2006.

I would expect it to be major at the core with Windows NT 7.0. Windows 7 was a tune up and had changes for the user experience, but 7's NT version was only .1 ahead of Vista.

When Longhorn was in development, it had Windows NT 6.0 (of course an early alpha version). But if Microsoft had developed that further and we had another Windows upgrade (Blackcomb) after Longhorn, we could be at Windows NT 7.x or Windows NT 8 in 2009, or atleast in development. I think Microsoft is a little behind

Windows 7 is Kernel version 7.0 but for compatibility reasons they have used the number 6.1

Yes, betaarchive is not a warez community, so no final (recent) software (only abandonware and beta's)

Well I'm bored enough and see nobody else has done it. Let's take the final build as the example. It's reasonably simple.

6.1.7600.16385.090713-1255

6.1 is the kernel revision for the main "core" of the OS. Windows 7 should actually be 7.0 or 7.1 but has been kept at 6.1 for Vista compatibility I believe.

7600 is the build/compile number, basically how many times the software has been auto-compiled which I believe is done every day. However as it is "final" it is rounded up (some internal bookkeeping thing according to Steven Sinofsky), this build would actually be something like 7273 or so. The number is rounded up usually at significant milestones, beta being bumped up to 7000, RC 7100 and so on.

16385 is an "assembly" number. I *believe* this is just their way of distinguishing a new build/compile after RTM phase without incrementing the build number again for minor changes.

The next part in this is the date of compile in year/month/date format. In this case 090713 (2009, July, 13th).
The final part is the time of compile. -1255 of course being 12:55pm.
