We got a quick note from Microsoft saying that Windows 7 RTM (Release
to Manufacture) or the final official version in English will start shipping to
big customers on August 7th.
Microsoft has confirmed that it will start shipping the new OS to its Volume License (VL) customers
with an existing Software Assurance (SA). If you are part
of TechNet you will be able to download it on August 6th and this is only for
English version, while other remaining languages will be available after October
The first shipping day still remains October 22nd and many
OEMs are already offering a free upgrade to Windows 7 if you buy a PC between today and early 2010.
