Good question.

Midday (or later) Redmond time.

The Customer Preview will come to life in less then 24hr.s now! The download links seen greyed out at Technet will also suddenly do the same there once the public availability is authorized by MS at a certain time. Just what minute of which hour Redding time still has to been seen there.

That will likely be late afternoon as it was seen with the beta release. The one smart move MS did this time around however was greatly increase the amount of time the RCs will be available for those who missed their chance back on 2/12! You won't see many rushing at torrent sites when the "clean, bug free" copies of 7 are readily available for an almost 2 month period over the beta's 2 week stretch!

I'll have two downloads started with the downloaders already installed while simply sitting back and watching all the hussle! With the recent ISP upgrade both will keep a steady pace even if slow while the betas kept getting bumped and restarted with that old dsl nonsense!

Meanwhile since the 7100 x86 leak hasn't seen a few things like the 7077 x64 does instead the partitioning theme will be changed again seeing the 64bit RC on the primary host instead of the 32bit now that XP is gone and Vista got pushed back a bit! Can't record on the x86?

Now to look over the x64 7100 to see if it will work there! If not? I don't want to have to go back to XP all over again!
