While Microsoft has announced the release date for the long-awaited Windows 7, Microsoft has decided that it will release the RTM (release to manufacturers) version on July 13, 2009 – the same day as the WPC09 (Worldwide Partner Conference), to be held in New Orleans, according to Geeksmack.
The RTM version is the final version, meaning that this version is set to be the smoothest and mostly bug-free than the Release Candidate and the Beta versions. Partner connections like TechNet and MSDN are set to get their hands on the RTM version shortly after.
And what about you, those who don’t have access to those partner connections? Someone might put up a torrent of it so you can download it.
Windows 7 is set to reverse the trend after the disastrous Windows Vista and its PR, and many of the beta testers are happy with the new changes, including performance improvements and new features. While there will be at least six versions of the product, only Home Premium, Professional (which is like Business, just renamed) and Ultimate versions will be out to the public – but Ultimate will be the harder one to find in retail markets.
