• Windows 7 Release Candidate coming any minute now, I think

    MS just posted a Partner Solutions page that says:

    We are pleased to announce that Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC) is available.

    The link there points to the MSDN download site. If you belong to MSDN and click through, you find that Windows 7 isn’t yet available. But I’ll betcha it will be shortly.

    Partners: If you have a subscription to MSDN or TechNet, you can download Windows 7 RC now. Otherwise, you can download Windows 7 RC starting May 5, 2009.

    I don’t think this page was posted in error, and I don’t expect it to be retracted. We’ll see soon enough.

    Busy days ahead.

    Oh. I toldja so. (grin)

    UPDATE: Rats! Microsoft yanked the page. The Release Candidate isn’t yet available. But I still bet we see the RC circulating this month – perhaps only leaked on the newsgroups. And I wouldn’t be one little bit surprised if the internal date for public release of the RC is May 5. Of course, that doesn’t mean MS will make the internal date…
