I-want-it-right-now IT pros: Probably today in a torrent shop near you
Note: I know that there are advantages if IT pros and Microsoft partners can get their hands on such a complex product before the masses do. This time you have more than two months to get prepared before relatives and friends get on your nerves with those “Where can I find … now” and “How can I … in Windows 7” questions. Some of these questions will be answered in the coming weeks on 4sysops. So stay tuned!
By the way, it is also noteworthy that Windows 7 RC will expire only on June 1, 2010. However, it will start rebooting every two hours on March 1. I think this is quite generous of Microsoft considering that the RC is almost as good as Windows 7 RTM.
