I would hope so. But you never know these days with leaks what you are going to get. Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are..... you know the rest. :)

I think we can't compare this development and testing to Vista. With Vista we got several published beta versions and much more publicity about all the issues found (which kind of made Vista a legend of doom before it got out the gate). This time they are keeping closed mouthed about problems to the general public. While those that participated in the beta1 testing in general could see the issues but most of us had a favorable experience and we let everybody know it. Many have criticized the stance Sinofsky took with Win7 development and betas, and quite justly so, but he has responded very well when accused of not providing feedback. He never gave in to demands for another beta release. This is just my opinion.
Well if you re-read my post, I didn't specifically talk about issues. Merely missed deadlines.

Remember they kept having to delay its release.

That brings up the 7 home page there as a place as well to look for any announcements for the public release in late May.

While browsing the Q&A section provided for general questions one MVP indicated MS hasn't made any definite anouncement on the RC but it seems the rumored date found on response was pointing at the 5/9/2009 date while the conference is set for the 5th. This is why I've been cautioning about anticipation about any one date in particular prior to an actual MS confirmation.

Another Q&A session saw this reply from an unspecified MS source there.

"The RC release will be available at least through June 2009.

"The Windows 7 RC will also expire on a different date than the beta,
according to Microsoft. While the beta came with an expiration date of
Aug. 1, 2009, the RC won't expire until June 1, 2010."

this is the current expiration of 7077, I read it in the user agreement and you can get it when doing the cmd functions

That tells me right there that after a certain point MS pinpointed one specific date for all following escrow into RC builds to run out on that date assuming the retail/oem 7 would be already on the market long before that. It's a typical practice to extend the expirattion of any beta softwares past the anticipated release date in case of any delays as well as purchase of the retail replacement.

With the number crud leaks being altered or simply translated leaving remnants behind like the option to install in another language the only RC here will be the genuine article. Once that is out you may see leaks about but nothing's ever better then the original authentic genuine article you get direct from the source not some ??? you know nothing about!
