It appears as though Windows 7 RC (Release Candidate) may already be circulating amongst select beta testers. A new leak with filename 6.1.7048.winmain_win7rc1.090211-1625 has been spotted, indicating that build 7048 could be the first Release Candidate.

Crunch Gear have a little more information on the story:

The geeks at Redmond might already be rolling out the Release Candidate of Windows 7 to select beta testers. A few of those testers have leaked some info including the releases name: 6.1.7048.winmain_win7rc1.090211-1625. Those two little letters of RC probably indicate that this is the release that many have been waiting for. The last beta, build 7022, is just a minor upgrade over the 7000 public beta, but the RC should offer enough goods to tempt upgrades.

Build 7022 leaked to torrent sites days ago and hopefully the RC1 will follow shortly. Officially, this version wasn’t suppose to come out until April 2009, but maybe the initial beta test went better than Microsoft expected and moved the schedule up a bit.

Windows 7 Build 7048 is a Fake

Just a little update: Build 7048 is a Fake

The latest build is actually build 7046, and it is NOT on the release candidate branch like we thought 7048 was.

Have you tried 7046, and is it any different from 7000?

I've not tried any of the other later builds, because not much seems to have changed.

I haven't, but I'd be willing to. Where can I get it other than a torrent site? My web filtering blocks torrent sites. :mad:
