Windows 7 RC available to public on May 5th

Last major release before final version


Microsoft has recently updated its Program Partner Site to include details regarding the upcoming release of Windows 7 RC. A page has been posted on the company's site notifying TechNet and MSDN subscribers that they are now able to download the Release Candidate build.

However, in all honesty there was a slip up on Microsoft's part by posting the info page a little too soon, as MSDN partners are reporting that the build is not appearing on their accounts yet. On the other hand, TechARP Gold partners have been given the new 7.8GB Release Candidate known as build 7200, or 6.1.7200.0 to be specific. Last week we reported that Microsoft just pushed out build 7105 which was a significant milestone, and it is apparent that the development team has been very hard at work in these recent days.

Overall, the information given seems to match up with our reporting of Microsoft's intentions to openly launch Windows 7 RC to the public in May. We are told from Microsoft's site that the public will be able to get its hands on this new build starting Tuesday, May 5th. More information will be given as it is made available.
