Yesterday we posted that Windows 7 build 7600 hit the torrent sites (it did), and that it was the final RTM version.
We made a mistake and can confirm now that it is not the final RTM version. Microsoft is still applying finishing touches and expects the RTM to be announced in the second half of this month, which is basically anytime now.
I'd like to offer up a little insight into the "Release to Manufacturing" (RTM) for Windows 7.
Over the past week, there have been many rumors surrounding RTM.
We are close, but have not yet signed off on Windows 7. When we RTM you will most certainly hear it here. As we've said all along, we will RTM Windows 7 when it's ready. As previously stated, we expect Windows 7 to RTM in the 2nd half of July.
