It’s August 6th and the RTM is finally available on MSDN and TechNet, starting the rollout of Windows 7 leading up to October 22 when it will be in stores around the world. As it happens the RTM will also be available for Windows 7 beta testers on Connect today. All invitational beta testers on Connect gets a complimentary Windows 7 Ultimate for their efforts, which I think is just the right thing to do for Microsoft.
I am downloading the bits as I write this and are looking forward to a weekend of updating all the household computers to the final code. I am going over my Complete Guide on How to Install Windows 7 RC, rewriting/updating it for the RTM and will post a final version of the article on the blog later this week. I am also working on a guide on how to use Live Mesh for synchronizing files and folders between different computers.
On a different note; This site has been very silent for the month of July due to the fact that I spent the it in Lebanon on a vacation with my family. We were in the southern part of the country with no internet connection in our house. It was actually great being disconnected, but having said that; it is great to be hooked in again 😀 So – I am back and hopefully the site will be more active once more. Thanks for hanging in there and showing your patience.
