    In what has become a regular occurrence, another version of Windows 7 has leaked to file-sharing sites. The latest version is reportedly Win 7 Release Candidate built 7100, which is slated for an official Microsoft launch in early May.

    Some bloggers who've had a chance to examine the alleged bootleg of RC 7100 are convinced it's the real deal. Long Zheng of the istartedsomething blog believes the latest Win 7 code, accessible via your favorite "content hub" (P2P site), is real if unspectacular:

    "The highly anticipated release candidate (RC) build of Windows 7 has been leaked and its authenticity is entirely undisputed. First looks reveal nothing significantly new or different, but if you've been wanting to get a vibe of how far Windows 7 has come since the public beta, especially performance, this is the build to get."

    Lee Mathews of Download Squad has a similar take: RC 7100 is real, but not that thrilling: "Visually not much has changed, so don't expect to see anything Earth-shattering."

    And Windows 7 News is displaying 50 screenshots of the alleged RC 7100. The site asked readers to comment if they've "spotted anything out of the ordinary like new features or changes." But thus far all indications are that RC 7100 doesn't bring dramatic changes, such as a rumored new interface.

    If anything, it appears that RC 7100 is very close to the finished product. Microsoft hasn't announced a release date for Windows 7, although industry watchers expect it to ship later this year. Win 7's most prominent improvement will be a less-intrusive User Account Control, or UAC, a security feature designed to prevent rogue code from hijacking a PC. Microsoft recently that stated that Windows 7 users will see nearly a third fewer UAC prompts than Windows Vista users.

    Nearly a third?

    That was the #1 complaint about Vista and the the biggest target for Apple and its users. I would have thought that issue would have been handled better than just reducing the amount of errors by a small margin.

    An "unspectacular" release from Microsoft. No, really...?

    Did you have to do a fresh install? I heard that you could not upgrade from the beta.

    I just tried the upgrade, installed, and then after re-boot (final) it BSOD'd me 3x, so I went to advanced and selected repair and said it was in incompatible so I guess not, or summen's wrong with my compy.

    BTW, WTF does free leech got to do with it, why do you need both versions anyway, I guess AIO would be good for all "7" editions this OS will have.
