After getting a look at what changes have been implemented in post-beta builds of Windows 7 on the official Engineering Blog last week, users were understandably excited about how things have been progressing with Microsoft’s latest OS.

It didn’t take long for screenshots to surface of current builds showing some of the new changes in action, and now it appears as though an ISO file of build 7048 has been leaked onto several torrent trackers.

At this point in the Windows 7 news game, it’s important to take this information with a grain of salt. Still, previous builds that leaked turned out to be legitimate, so there’s every reason to believe that 7048 is the real deal, too.

Caveat emptor – make sure you exercise caution if you decide to track down the torrent and install the build. It’s not an official Microsoft release, so you never know for sure what could be lurking inside. You’re also likely to have a lengthy wait – the torrents aren’t well seeded, and they’re likely to see a massive surge in peers.
