Microsoft expected to deliver 2 RCs for Windows 7

Windows 7
  • The most recent build compiled is build 7061 on March 11, 2009
  • Internal RC-escrow builds would be delivered as the first RC of Windows 7 & Windows Server 2008 R2 on the fourth week of April 2009
  • Release candidate 2 for Windows 7 & for Windows Server 2008 R2 will be released to the public during the last week of May 2009
An Escrow Build is a build where development halts and developers & beta testers start testing the product for any show-stopper bugs. Microsoft always emphasizes this to testers to concentrate only on the regressions and confirmation of fixes when asking for feedback on escrow builds.

The original source is supposed to be WZOR, a russian site. They say this is the revised TAP schedule. They may be correct about RC in late April, but I find it hard to believe about a second RC coming.

There is no second RC coming. RC-Escrow != RC. I've talked to the writer and he changed the article.

I'm drooling for 7061. I installed 7057 on my media center and it kinda blows. Every time it goes to screensaver in Media Center for a few hours it hangs, on top of the guide and info problems, I'm anxiously awaiting this build.
