As you know, this is the month when Microsoft will be unveiling Windows 7 RTM (Released to Manufacturing). Certain rumours were aroused yesterday that Windows 7 RTM has made to RTM and a leaked version Build 7600 was also out.
What’s the Truth ?
Brandon LeBlanc from Windows Official blog has now confirmed that, MS has not yet signed off on Windows 7. We expect Windows 7 to RTM in the 2nd half of July.
Latest Highlights of Windows 7 RTM
- Upgrades from the Windows 7 RC to RTM will not be supported. You will be required to do a Custom installation (aka “clean install”).
- MSDN and TechNet subscribers, as well as Volume License customers will have access to product keys (PIDs) when Windows 7 is made available to them.
- DON’T download bogus/leaked copies of Windows 7 floating around the Internet, as they may contain a rather nice malware payload.
- All copies of Windows 7 in developed markets will ship with both 32-bit and 64-bit DVDs.
Windows first and foremost focus is a super high quality release of Windows 7 for hitting RTM.
