    With the vast amount of builds that have leaked on the internet, why hasn't
    the paying TechNet subscribers been given an updated build. From what I have
    read and seen on the internet, Windows 7 has changed internally since the
    build we have available, so our software we are testing may not function
    correctly with the latest builds.

    I just hope we, as paying subscribers, do not have to wait much longer for
    updated builds. We just want to make sure Windows 7 is the best OS it can
    be. Who knows, MS would also have more people to file bug reports if
    something comes up.

  2. If you were really a TechNet "paying subscriber," then you'd know that
    this question should be addressed through your subscriber support
    channels, rather than being wasted whining in a public newsgroup.

    You're sure about that? If he is a subscriber, you are able to predict
    his knowledge level and thought patterns perfectly?

  5. If you are concerned about the software you are developing and testing it
    ready for Windows 7 then you should not be using a TechNet subscription as
    your source of builds for testing purposes. Ideally you should have joined
    the appropriate technical beta program. TechNet is a low priority for the
    release of prerelease software, MSDN subscriptions have in the past
    received pre release software and other builds not offered to TechNet
    subscribers as that subscription is more directly focused at software
    developers/testers.
    TechNet is liekly to only receive the Release Candidate build and this may
    still be staggered after it is made available to the Technical Beta Programs
    and OEMs and then MSDN programs.
