Default Windows 7 RC expected at the end of February

WinnFuture, a German website reports that the one and only RC build of Windows 7 will be ready at the end of February to be sent to select testers.

According to WinFuture's sources, the first-RC build has been compiled by now. The build number currently under test is not known, however WinFuture reports that 7048 was the latest build of Windows 7 and might be the RC, created a few days before and confirms that work is currently going on around the Windows 7 RC build.

The German website also reports that MSDN/TechNet subscribers along with the other private beta testers, would receive the RC build after 27th February, but not sure about the public beta which ended few weeks back.

Neowin earlier reported that we could be seeing the Windows 7 RC in early April, but with the rumor that Windows 7 is set to hit RTM in August, no wonder we can expect the RC build very soon!

Its coming fast. Granted this is what Vista should have been anyways so it's not like they had to re-code the whole thing. I can't wait till it's final and apps are officially supported so I dont have to use compatibility modes for things to install (Intel Chipset drivers, GTA IV, and a few others).

It's not been a good thing for my workstation at work, we use Logmein like crazy here and Logmein hates W7. That's the main reason I had to go back to Vista Business.

that's the best thing about this release is that the driver release issues with Vista should be practically non-existent with Win 7.

Is this the first time you on Windows have experienced this?, OS's should be "Solid".

Lets face it, they just had to put right what was wrong with Vista, Windows 7 is only like it is because Vista was such a screw up.

well yea there are a few apps that arent compatible. Thats gonna happen. Logmein is one of those with known issues. Punkbuster may not work right as well but Evenbalance has come out and said until it's RTM it wont be supported.

PB worked fine for me in Win7 beta, tried it out in COD4 and it was working great.

Im not having issues but alot of people are in COD4 and BF2. I updated PB using their utility and it wasnt an issue for me either. I dont know if alot of people know about the update utility or use it though.

In any case Even Balance has said they wont support Beta OSes.
