Ready, Set, 7: Windows 7 Released To Manufacturing

by Bharat Suneja

Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 were released to manufacturing (RTMed) today. These will become generally available on October 22nd.

IT Pros and developers with TechNet or MSDN subscriptions will be able to download the English version on August 6th, with other languages following on October 1st.

If you’ve been waiting to get a new computer with Windows 7 pre-installed, you may have to wait a little longer as most hardware manufacturers complete their shipping images.

Could Windows 7 accomplish everything that's expected of it? I can say probably not, but it makes a damn good attempt. I found installing XP, Vista and Windows 7 on the same hardware over the space of a week also proved that point: Hardware just worked when I booted up Windows 7 for the first time, while my machines were practically catatonic with XP until I dug up the drivers, and gimped with Vista until I dutifully updated. Now, none more stuff can perform that is Manufacturing. It will be key approach for windows 7.
