Windows 7 RC1 possibly releasing last week of May
Microsoft updates its product schedule
According to Russian website Wzor, Microsoft has updated its 2010 Technical Adoption Program schedule and has provided new dates for major Windows 7 builds among other Microsoft products.
As of now, the latest build of Windows 7 is 7061 which was released on March 11th. Microsoft plans to send internal Release Candidate builds of its upcoming operating system to select testers in the last week of April. Meanwhile, the public will receive Windows 7 RC1 and Windows Server 2008 RC2 during the last week of May.
Microsoft's delay of the Windows 7 Release Candidate build won't necessarily push back the final retail release, but will merely give testers more time to point out problems and provide feedback. There are a handful of new updates expected with the RC build over the current beta builds which have been detailed by the company here.
