That would be May 7th not the 5th it seems. The enrollment points out the readiness day as "Windows 7 Virtual Partner Readiness Day: May 7, 2009".

c) Several MSFT web site accidents (sic) have revealed some ideas for RC dates but only key players at MSFT know the real dates. Things can change at any moment.
d) Build 7082 may leak but it is not the final RC by any means
e) Windows 7 RC will be available in the next few days or weeks, officially or unofficially
d) TechNet and MSDN can only download build 7000 as this post
e) People who know what's going on are not saying.
f) There is no build 7200.

I am still waiting for a confirmation email after being authorized for the Partner Program. Hopefully I will get it soon. Posting info on here might be why I don't have access yet. But I'll get over it
Most of those points seem pretty valid, especially e) and f) lol..

Ahem. This from a newspaper in New Zealand. Pay particular note to the second paragraph and third paragraph from the bottom.

Windows 7 - Microsoft's antidote to Vista | Stuff.co.nz

January is still the official line?? I did not know that. Not sure how many other papers around the world ran this story. I hope the article is right when it says "Signs point to a possible release months ahead of schedule"...

What does that have to do with Windows 7 RC? This thread is about the soon to be released RC, not the finalized Windows 7.

That's easy: installing.

I love watching the "copying files" percentage!

But even better is the "installing features" status!

That had to be from November 2008 at least showing how old that one is. Most now are simply waiting to see what is up with the early May and late May time frame. As far as Windows 8 you can read an article just released a few days ago. Microsoft: Windows 8 Major Improvements Beginning Soon - To revolutionize file access in branch offices - Softpedia

No thanks on the 9.04 at present. I still have both flavors of the 8.10 to work with when 7 isn't consuming all the time here!

So is 7 another transition OS like Vista?

Vista wasn't any transition OS from XP there by any means. What is now being seen in 7 is the major refinement starting off at first with the Vista kernel while now seeing some rather new improvements integrated into it.

As far as 8 at this point everything is speculation and nothing confirmed except MS will start work on the next version once 7 is finished in order to get back on their original 2-3yr. time frame for each new version. At this time however we are waiting to see what the RC brings along in comparison to the beta into escrow stages and on from there.
