RTM = Released to Manufacturing
At 1:40pm Pacific (Redmond) time, the party started around the world, as both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 finally ship; that is to say, they are “RTM’d”. The bits are ready. They’ll be sent to OEMs, then made available to partners, businesses, TechNet and MSDN subscribers, and finally throughout the world.
Congratulations to the product teams and to all of the many people who tested it, reported issues, and helped Microsoft make these into such amazing products. This is the biggest and most important new product release for Microsoft since Windows 3.1 and Windows 95.
“Bigger than Microsoft Bob?”
Oh yes. And shut up.
For all the details, simply go to http://www.microsoft.com/windows. And of course the Windows 7 Team blog: http://windowsteamblog.com/blogs/windows7/default.aspx
For Windows Server 2008 R2, check out http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/
And the Server Division Blog: http://blogs.technet.com/windowsserver/
Only time will tell whether it will flop like Vista did.
Woo-hoo! Waiting patiently for August 6th!!
