+ - Critical Windows 7 Bug May Hinder Launch-> 1

Submitted by Glenn2372
Glenn2372 (461378) writes "According to Randall C. Kennedy of Infoworld, multiple sources have confirmed that RTM build 7600.16385 includes a potentially fatal bug that could crash the OS in a matter of seconds. The bug is a massive memory leak involving the chkdsk.exe utility when run against a secondary hard disk using the "/r" parameter. Whether this is an actual showstopper that halts the August 6th release for MSDN or the October 22nd commercial release is unclear, but this definitely doesn't bode well for the boys at Microsoft."
