The leaked Windows 7 build 7025
Here are some details on the Windows 7 build 7025 that leaked this past weekend.
There has been little talk of Windows 7 builds after the leak and public release of the first beta build (7000) earlier this month, but Microsoft has definitely been busy. What many seem to overlook is that build 7000 was compiled on December 12, 2008, at 2:00PM. Since then, there have been many other builds compiled, including 7003, 7004, 7012, 7015, 7016, and 7025. The last one, which leaked over the weekend (though it is much harder to find than 7000), has the following build string number: “7025.0.x86fre.winmain.090120-1850,” meaning it was compiled on January 20, 2009, at 6:50PM. That makes it only a week old, which means it is quite new, though of course it is not the newest.
Build 7025 incorporates quite a few bug fixes, as well as a few minor visual changes to built-in programs like Paint and Windows Media Player.
