Windows 7: Official RTM Release Dates

The major language packs are complete and all will probably be completed by the end of the month. You might have to wait a bit for them. RTM is complete and signed off on by the voting members as described by WZOR. No, it's not officially announced but that doesn't change the fact it is finished.

Not to be nitpicking here:

Windows 7 will be available in many languages from around the world. For us to consider RTM “done”, it requires that all languages be completely finished. So there is a lot of work that needs to take place for us to finalize all languages of Windows 7.

All languages is what they claimed on the windows 7 blog, in any case, they only up English from what I can gather.,

It's not going to happen. Please everyone stop this..
They may not compile a new build...however they MAY re-compile the existing build with a later date then the one out in the wild right now....New digital signature, different hash codes etc so that the multitude of "leaked versions" cannot be activated with M$ keys.
It would make it less troublesome as there are no guarantee's that what people currently think is RTM is actually the RTM.

With all the hoopla around right now I could see M$ giving it a new build string....just to be able to say "see...you were all wrong".

Yeah hard to say exactly what he meant by that, it could be that be that development on them is finished but not packaged and available, but only they know for sure. I would suspect the languages that will be made immediately will be the same as with the RC which were English,French,German,Spanish,Japanese.

Windows 7 RTM
 
 

And to finally shut the people up that are saying there will be a change to themes/sounds/icons in the final build when it automagically appears.

Quote from Mike Ybarra @ MS

Quote:
No changes from RC to RTM on sounds/icons/themes. But this is a significant change from Vista relative to the themes inbox.
Thanks,
Mike

LOL, yes I could see that also. But if I were to lay a bet at Vegas right not, I would bet that the build most of us are running is the final. It has to be final and signed off to get the language MUI packs started. That has happened already according to what I have heard.

Regardless, they are running out of time because they're going to bump against the Physical DVDs in Warehouses constraints. If this isn't it, it's very close.

I wonder why they are making the partners wait 10 days after MSDN and TechNet? That is strange. I can see OEM's getting it first but partners.....
