Windows 7 Status Update

Well. Windows 7 is on the road to RTM. The rumor is form Softpedia that Microsoft has finished Windows 7 Release Candidate and released it to testers. Softpedia also says that the build number is 7048. I believe the rumors are ture. Screenshots have been leaked of Windows 7 build 7032, it looks well polished for a Release Candidate and also Softpedia does this the build string for 7048, 6.1.7048.winmain_win7rc1.090211-1625. So, it was compiled on February 11th, 2009. So 2 months ahead of the April 2009 date. Windows 7 is without a douh ahead of schedule. I now expect RTM to be finished in Late April/May and out in June/July. I admit it, I have tested Windows 7 Builds later than Beta Build 7000. I have tested Windows 7 Pre-RC Build 7022, which was leaked to torrents sites and it was compiled on January 15th, 2009.

UPDATE: Rumors were false. Microsoft will release Windows 7 Release Candidate on April 10th to the public and it will be the only release candidtate. I expect RTM in June/July and out in October.
