Microsoft official hints at April for Windows 7 RC release

Quote:
According to a posting on Microsoft's Swedish partner blog we could be seeing the Windows 7 release candidate in early April.

The blog also hints at a RTM and business launch of Q3 2009. According to the blog Michael Bohlin, a Windows product manager, was questioned over Windows 7 availability. The blogger also states "the cut of all internal guesses here in the office right now is October 3 at 11.10" for the RTM date. Windows chief Steven Sinofsky posted a blog entry today to put to rest any rumours of a beta 2 for Windows 7 and confirm the next release will be the near final release candidate.

Microsoft is currently rumoured to be readying an interim build for Windows 7 testers for next month.

Early april would be good. Seems that we will see 7 before the end of the year.
Vista 6 years
7, just under 3.

Seems like MS have finally listened lol
Good post mate

April sounds good and feasible to me. Honestly, there isn't much to fix with the beta, and they have already said that the beta contains all of the intended final features in the code, except there are a few that haven't been activated, like how the superbar was not activated by default on 6801.

Great news, I'm looking forward to loading that up. I only have win 7 now on my main PC. Incredible for a beta release.

The sooner the better, as long as it's not rushed out the door before all the fixes are in. Would be nice to see the public release before this one expires.
