The link to download the RC is not active yet. I have NOT seen anything that confirms they have locked the RC bits as of now (4/18/2009 8:27PM CDT). Although I bet it is one of the latest WinRC builds (7085 to 7087). They may renumber the build. They will use the version 6.1 in the version string since that is what developers have een told to use for version check for Windows 7. I am a TechNet subscriber and I am in the Partner Program. They haven't posted it yet. Microsoft has confirmed the RC will be available to everyone on Sinco de Mayo (May 5th).
This is from the partner site: "Download Windows 7 RC
Partners: If you have a subscription to MSDN or TechNet, you can download Windows 7 RC now. Otherwise, you can download Windows 7 RC starting May 5, 2009."
So according to that statement, some will get it in the next few days or weeks. But everyone can get it on May 5th.
And no, I will not leak it early. Now SoLoR might heheh....
