Are these the 'official' releases or the unofficial leaked versions?? :p
btw, I've read somewhere that the 7077 build does not contain anything visually different to that of the 7068, so what has been improved in this latest build?

I've read that third party codecs were locked out of the recent builds, any word on the validity of those claims?

yes lord some 3rd party codecs have been locked out - but from what i hear this is a temp measure

As we move toward the release of Windows 7, we have worked to add more codecs and file types to allow for a better user experience. We also allow Microsoft experiences to use codecs and other format technologies from third-party companies, just as we always have. Third party applications can use the Microsoft codecs or their own. Microsoft does not restrict the use of third-party codecs. – Microsoft Spokesperson

start blocking in 7057 - think some said its still doing it in 7068, not sure if its like this now, more than likely its just a way to test the codecs they have added aren't facking things about

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
