    Windows 7 RTM already Used by Aus Students since August

    Posted: 15 Aug 2009
    Thousands of Australian students have been able to use the gold release of Windows 7 since early August 2009, almost concomitantly with MSDN and TechNet subscribers. The New South Wales government has been distributing approximately 5000 Lenovo netbooks each week, each preloaded with the RTM Build 7600 development milestone of Windows 7, according to AustralianIT. A few schools in NSW have been testing Windows 7 since the availability of Release Candidate Build 7100 in May 2009, including students at the Arthur Phillip High School.

    In the second half of June 2009, Microsoft confirmed that select customers would be receiving Windows 7 RTM well ahead of the official General Availability date set for October 22nd, 2009. At that time, the Redmond company pointed to the Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, which would be among the first companies to roll out Windows 7 PCs.
