This is a good news guys. The Beta is over and soon we all we have W7 in our PCs replacing the Vista
As I mentioned previously, RTM officially happens only after sign-off occurs. What happens is a build gets designated as a RTM contender after going through significant testing and meeting our quality bar for RTM. Then, it goes though all the validation checks required for RTM including having all languages of that build completed. If all the validation checks have passed – sign-off for RTM can occur. Today after all the validation checks were met, we signed off and declared build 7600 as RTM.
When you are going to get it, all depend of what kind of user you are. You can find some dates here. The majority will get it in October. MSDN and Technet Subscribers will get it in August.
Wow! I can not hide that I’m really excited with this release. I have been using W7 beta since it first release and being part of this process allowed me to see how it matured in what we have now in the RTM. W7 is without any doubt in my mind the best Windows ever released. Still, it’s not perfect and as usual we will see a robust OS after the first SP1 but this RTM to me is the best one that Microsoft has ever released.
