Windows 7 RTM to Be Released Next Month


Microsoft announced that the RTM version of the upcoming Windows 7 operating system will be available to delelopers in the 6th of August.

Microsfot's ISV (Independent software vendor) and IHV (Independent hardware vendor) Partners will be able to download Windows 7 RTM from Microsoft Connect or MSDN on August 6th.

Microsoft Partner Program Gold/Certified Members will be able to download Windows 7 RTM in English through the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) Portal on August 16th. By October 1st, the remaining languages will become available to download.

Microsoft Action Pack Subscribers will be about to download Windows 7 RTM in English starting August 23rd. By October 1st, the remaining languages will become available to download.

OEMs will receive Windows 7 RTM software images beginning approximately 2 days after we officially RTM, as a little time is required to release and distribute these images. This will allow them to begin preparing images for new PCs to ship with Windows 7 on them.

Business Customers

Volume License (VL) customers with an existing Software Assurance (SA) license will be able to download Windows 7 RTM in English starting August 7th via the Volume License Service Center (VLSC). The rest of the languages for Windows 7 RTM should be available within a couple of weeks after that.

Volume License customers without a SA license will be able to purchase Windows 7 through Volume Licensing on September 1st as Microsoft announced last week at WPC09.

IT Professionals

There are a few ways for IT professionals to get Windows 7 RTM. IT Professionals with TechNet Subscriptions will be able to download Windows 7 RTM in English on August 6th and remaining languages by October 1st.

Developers with MSDN Subscriptions will be able to download Windows 7 RTM in English on August 6th and remaining languages by October 1st.

There have been some rumors going around about a "family pack" for Windows 7.The company confirm that it will indeed be offering a family pack of Windows 7 Home Premium (in select markets) which will allow installation on up to 3 PCs.

Beta testers will not automatically receive a free copy of Windows 7. Many beta testers are already subscribers to TechNet; those who fit that description will be able to download Windows 7 RTM shortly after RTM happens for free as part of their subscription.

However, all those who don?t have TechNet and are waiting for GA (to either purchase Windows 7 or wait for theirpre-order to arrive) they can continue to use the RC. They can continue to use it until it expires on June 1st, 2010 (expiration actually starts March 1, 2010, this is when the reboots start).

While Microsoft's special pre-order offer with the near 50% has ended, Windows 7 can still be pre-ordered today from the various online retailers (including the Microsoft Store).

Microsfot is also going to release an evaluation of Windows 7 Professional for IT Professionals via the Springboard Series shortly after RTM. Over 40% of beta testers are IT Professionals and this will allow them to quickly access the RTM code and plan for deployments.

Windows 7 will be in retail stores and shipping on new PCs starting October 22nd.
