Microsoft expected to deliver 2 RCs for Windows 7 and more info
 
Neowin earlier reported that Windows 7 RC is expected on April 10, 2009, but it looks like Microsoft has updated its schedule. Russian website Wzor has given some interesting tidbits about the revised 2010 TAP schedule of Microsoft. Wzor gives us the following dates related to Windows 7, Office 14 and Microsoft Exchange Server 2010.

Windows 7

The most recent build compiled is build 7061 on March 11, 2009
Internal RC-escrow builds would be delivered as the first RC of Windows 7 & Windows Server 2008 R2 on the fourth week of April 2009
Release candidate 2 for Windows 7 & for Windows Server 2008 R2 will be released to the public during the last week of May 2009

An Escrow Build is a build where development halts and developers & beta testers start testing the product for any show-stopper bugs. Microsoft always emphasizes this to testers to concentrate only on the regressions and confirmation of fixes when asking for feedback on escrow builds.

Office 14

First beta of Office 14 will be released in early July and will not be available for public testing
Second beta version of Office 14 will be released in early November
Final RTM release of Office 14 is scheduled in early March 2010

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

The RTM release of Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 is planned for early October 2009

While these dates are expected to change, it is nice to see Windows 7 progress and I am up for anything that makes Windows 7 a stable OS.

Neowin updated the article. There will not be 2 RC builds released officially. Internal testers will receive RC-escrow builds while the public will receive the official RC in May.

I just want a new version to be released to MSDN soon. I went looking for one of the newer x64 builds out there, and they all seemed kind of shady.

I just want it to RTM already. Hell they released Vista in much worse shape with the "we can patch after we ship" mentality. Just RTM it and release it, they can touch it up through Windows update. I guess I'm just really ready for Win7 support from people like Even Balance (punkbuster) who wont officially support beta OSes.

Windows 7 in it's current state is much better than Vista and I can run it on my laptop and Netbook. I'm just tired of installing new betas every few weeks and having to use compatibility mode for some things.

While I do agree with your earlier thought on RTM by July / August, I don't see releasing it as it is right now. There are still some things to polish up. However, I assume you were not being literal but I do get what you are saying. Bottom line...release it sooner rather than later.

Seven is definately looking far more refined at this stage than any other beta I have participated in before and that goes back to Windows 95. The Vista beta was the worst by far.
