Windows 7 Officially RTM'd by Microsoft!
Let Windows Nerds around the world rejoice!
As of 03:40 PM Wednesday Jul 22, 2009 Windows Seven has gone official! Congratulations to the Windows 7 Team.
Can’t wait till it is released in stores now. Then my never ending journey to have the latest and greatest of everything can continue on….. and on…
I am pleased to announce that Windows 7 has RTM’d!
As I mentioned previously, RTM officially happens only after sign-off occurs. What happens is a build gets designated as a RTM contender after going through significant testing and meeting our quality bar for RTM. Then, it goes though all the validation checks required for RTM including having all languages of that build completed. If all the validation checks have passed – sign-off for RTM can occur. Today after all the validation checks were met, we signed off and declared build 7600 as RTM.
