Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 - some more details for Subscribers

Several of you have asked for some additional details on the launch, in terms of waves and languages. Here you go:

The initial launch wave is expected to be primarily English Client bits, but is expected to also have some language packs, WAIKs, SDKs, DDKs, etc.

The next wave is expected to follow a week or two later, and should include French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese Client bits as well as Server 2008 R2 English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese bits.

A third wave is expected to start several weeks later, with more languages. Languages will be added to the site as they are released to the team, so over time.
