As Screenshots of Windows 7 Build 7077 Leak Online, Poll Touts Windows 7 User Satisfaction

Screenshots of yet another Windows 7 build, mainly Build 7077, have leaked online, but the question is “do you really care?” – keep in mind that just a few days ago screenshots of Build 7070 leaked online as well. If you don’t care, then you should; we’ll explain further down. In Windows 7 related news, a poll conducted by ChangeWave Research shows that almost half of the respondents (people testing Windows 7) are “very satisfied” with Windows 7 Beta Build 7000.

Starting with the Windows 7 leaked screenshots, the first thing we usually take a look at is the build string. For example, the recently leaked Windows 7 Build 7068 had the following build string info - “7068.0.090321-1322_x86fre_client_en-us_Retail_Ultimate-GRC1CULFRE_EN_DVD.iso” – showing us that the build was compiled on the 21st of March 2009. The catch with windows 7 Build 7077 (image below) is that it does not have a lengthy build string, it simply says “Version 6.1 (Build 7077)”.


Why is this piece of information of any interest? The only Windows 7 build we’ve seen so far that had an “abbreviated” build string was Windows 7 Beta Build 7000 – “Version 6.1 (Build 7000)”. With the Windows 7 team already announcing how the transition to the upcoming Windows 7 Release Candidate will go (there is no easy Windows 7 Beta to Windows 7 RC upgrade option, just so you know), is this any indication that Build 7077 will be the RC? Probably not, we’ll just have to wait until May when Microsoft will release Windows 7 RC.

Moving on, a poll conducted by ChangeWave researchers Andy Golub and Mike Wrobel reveals that 44% of respondents are “very satisfied” with Windows 7 Beta. A similar poll was conducted in 2007, when Vista first came out and it revealed that only 10% of users were “very satisfied” with Microsoft’s operating system. This is certainly good news for the Redmond software developer, but it is not exactly news for the rest of the world. We already knew that Windows 7 is properly good, especially when compared with Vista (which was actually banned in Texas ). There is one other factor to take into consideration: a total of 68 people responded to the poll, meaning that the sample is too small to provide and accurate verdict.

UPDATE: The build has appeared on torrent sites, available for 32-bit systems for now (7077.0.090404-1255_x86fre_client_en-us_Retail_Ultimate-GRC1CULFRER_EN_DVD.iso)
