RCs = Release Candidates

RTW = Released to Web

“for some” means “for TechNet and MSDN subscribers”

You remember several days ago we announced that the RC for Windows 7 would be available to TechNet and MSDN subscribers on April 30th.

“Hey, that’s today!”

Yep.  And of course the first thing I did this morning was to connect up to TechNet and see if the software was there.  It is!

Not only Windows 7, but we also have released Windows Server 2008 R2 Release Candidate today as well.

My download is progressing.  It’s a great day to be a TechNet Subscriber

"But the rest of the world gets it on May 5th, right?"

Yes.  May 5, 2009. 

Boy.. I feel like Steve Martin’s character Navin Johnson when the new phone books arrived...

But please.. wait ‘til my downloads are complete before starting yours.

  • <p>I was able to get to the TechNet downloads page earlier this morning, but when I tried to go to the Windows 7 section I received an error page, &quot;This page is either not responding or is no longer available&quot;. &nbsp;That error page is all I get now. &nbsp;</p> <p>Lucky are those who are able to download currently! &nbsp;I'm jealous. :)</p>

  • <p>I saw that later this morning when I tried to get Win7 x86 into my queue. &nbsp;But now it's opened up again. :)</p> <p>Keep tryin'!</p>
