The Windows 7 Timetable: What We Know

The Windows 7 Timetable: What We Know

I guess it’s a testament to the hardy reception for the Windows 7 beta. Shortly after its release, the rumors were already flying about the Windows 7 RTM date. And some seem so enamored that they’re lobbying for Microsoft to just ship it, already. Here’s what we know: According to the Engineering Windows 7 blog, which does not announce a ship date, “the next milestone for the development of Windows 7 is the Release Candidate or `RC’. Historically the Release Candidate has signaled `we’re pretty close and we want people to start testing the release, especially because all the features are done’.” While it’s been reported that this is an acceleration of the schedule, it’s actually not. The Release Candidate will be a refresh for the Beta and released to a broad set of folks to try out and give us feedback. After that “dress rehearsal” release comes the Release to Manufacturing and then the general availability. Again, no dates given, yet. In the meantime, take Windows 7 Feature Walkthrough, or get First look for IT Pros.

More to come,
