    Windows 8 will based on Win7 Post-RTM (winmain)...


    After reading the new informations on wz0r, It seems that the winmain branch, will be the base of Windows 8.

    Now the work is going in two directions, is to develop a code for the first service pack Service Pack 1 and continued development of post-RTM builds of Windows 7 for the work on the new operating system.
    So can we call this build...
    6.1.7700.0.winmain.100122.1900 - Hashes leaked on January 27th, 2010

    STRING: 6.1.7700.0.amd64fre.winmain.100122.1900
    FILE: 7700.0.100122-1900_x64fre_client_en-us-GRMCXFRE_EN_DVD.iso
    SIZE: 3,231,166,444 bytes
    SHA-1: C0CB719B781D49B39D8CC93A27F990A366B8E4C7
    ...windows 8 pre-pre-alfa?

    Unfortunatelly we haven't seen any of theese builds yet:

    I hope they take the time to strip down to MinWin, and base it off that.

    Every kernel has always been based on the previous since WinXP. I can't imagine MS creating a whole new Kernel anytime soon.

    Actually, they are based of the NT kernel. XP was based off this too.

    actually winxp was based on win2000 which was based on nt...you can trace it all the way down to nt1.0

    btw where did the guy who opened the topic get all those build numbers?
