A “slip-up” on the Microsoft Partner Portal earlier revealed that the Windows 7 RC (Release Candidate) will be with us on 5th May 🙂
I got the Windows 7 beta as soon as it was available which was Build 7000 and I installed that on my desktop at home. There have been numerous leaks of newer builds (we’re up to 7077 now) but I’ve not moved up to any of these for 2 reasons:
1) I’m not sure of the legality of downloading a leaked beta build and I don’t want to get caught up in all that!
2) The hassle of backing up and upgrading for what might be imperceptible changes.
Despite, or perhaps because of that, I can’t wait to upgrade to the RC. To see the many 1000’s of changes and updates that have been made will be excellent.
