I will be writing about Windows 7 at the BETAArchive wiki, but I want to have a clarification. What is the difference between the 3 builds listed below:

* 6801.winmain_win7m3.080913-2030
* 6801.winmain_win7m3.081020-1655
* 6933.winmain.081020-1842

Afaik, 6801 the early build (080913) will be given to the PDC attendees.

And 6933 was shown at the Opening Keynote or on a workstation.

6933 is the build shown at PDC, but not the build given out to PDC attendee's.
One of the 6801's would be the one given out at PDC, and, I would guess that the other is the one we saw glimpses of at winfuture.de.
I could be wrong though...

To elaborate on jabster's point, 6933 had some fancier eye candy on the taskbar. The video wasn't in-depth enough to show other key differences. Compared to the M1 leak, 6801 is very far along.

If either 6801 or 6933 leaked, however, I would be a happy, happy man.

AFAIK, the same build number with different build dates just means they may have had issues during the build process which were corrected but no real changes were made otherwise. Of course I really have no idea what I'm talking about. Also, don't forget about 6935. Where did 6935 come from anyway? I've only seen the build tag in posts, never any actual info.

My guess, also stating in advance that I really have no idea what I'm talking about, is that people are simply reading/writing 6933 incorrectly. Build tags usually don't get outside of Microsoft unless they're distributed to testers or being demonstrated, and nothing after 6933 that I know of has been.

I have a feeling that it might have been one of the builds on the Demo boxes...

I think it was mentioned in passing that the build being distributed at PDC is 6801.

It is, though it is a recompiled version of the one that had screenshots leaked a while ago.

I'm very certain that 6933 was only demonstrated, not distributed, although some folks are claiming that it has been leaked. For my part, I can't find it. The version PDC attendees got was 6801.

    6801.winmain_win7m3.080913-2030 - Winfuture's build that they leaked screenshots of recently
    6801.winmain_win7m3.081020-1655 - The build being given out to attendees at the PDC
    6933.winmain.081020-1842 - The build demonstrated at the PDC. It has not been leaked, despite claims it has.

Not completely correct.

6.1.6801.0 (winmain_win7m3.080913-2030) - this is the build given out to PDC attendees
6.1.6801.4107 (winmain_win7m3.081020-1655) - this is only a security fix for 6.1.6801.0

This is a picture of the 6801.0 discs given out at PDC:
Image

Filenames of the isos on the HDD are:
Windows 7 32-bit: 6801.0.080913-2030_Client_en-us_ULTIMATE-ULTIMATE_GB1CFRE_EN_DVD.iso
Windows 7 64-bit: 6801.0.080913-2030_Client_en-us_ULTIMATE-ULTIMATE_GB1CXFRE_EN_DVD.iso
Windows 7 Server 64-bit: 6801.0.080913-2030_amd64fre_Server_en-us-GB1SXFRE_EN_DVD.iso

Microsoft did not release any of the newer builds, because they did not have enough time to test
the new features (new taskbar etc.). Since they wanted to release a stable build they have chosen 6801.0...
