Breaking News: It’s here! RCs are RTW! (for some)
RCs = Release Candidates
RTW = Released to Web
“for some” means “for TechNet and MSDN subscribers”
You remember several days ago we announced that the RC for Windows 7 would be available to TechNet and MSDN subscribers on April 30th.
“Hey, that’s today!”
Yep. And of course the first thing I did this morning was to connect up to TechNet and see if the software was there. It is!
My download is progressing. It’s a great day to be a TechNet Subscriber.
"But the rest of the world gets it on May 5th, right?"
Yes. May 5, 2009.
Boy.. I feel like Steve Martin’s character Navin Johnson when the new phone books arrived...
But please.. wait ‘til my downloads are complete before starting yours.
