It would appear as though rumours which surfaced around a month ago are going to be proved correct, as sources close to multiple technology sites have confirmed that Windows 7 will be released to manufacturing on 13th July. Although general availability is still not until 22nd October, this is a significant milestone as the RTM build will be the final code which also gets shipped to the general public later this year. As well as OEMs, the build should also be available to TechNet and MSDN subscribers and will also no doubtedly find its way on to torrent sites shortly after. The wait for Microsoft's highly anticipated operating system is less than four months away, but for many of us little more than a week of waiting stands in our way.

Does that include MSDN Academic Alliance? Does anyone know how Microsoft handled that in the past? If so, me going to grad school might have fringe benefits.

Don't make me hurt you, boy. Laughing is a two-way street, and laughs can hurt.

Windows Vista has exactly what XP did back in 2007. Compatibility and drivers. Windows 7 is still buggy and unsupportive. If I am thinking about going back to Vista, you should know there is a good reason.

I get sick and tired of people playing the same broken record "Nothing worked with it" "drivers never worked" "Compatability issues mean im sticking with xp" boo fucking hoo. Why do you think microsoft stopped advertising Windows Vista and got straight on with windows 7? To prevent a Vista from ever happening again. If you have run the RC (by your specs it seems you have / are) you will know that there are literally ZERO issues with it.

Well that is just a couple months before October. I don't think I will rush out to get this. I may, however, get it when/if they release a service pack for it
since there are still some incompatibility issues, even though I didn't have any.
Although, I may just stick with XP x64 and Server 2008 :p

muhahahaha.....

Funny that XP is still increasing by 1.03% while Vista has only increased by 1.00%. Vista is competing with an OS that has been discontinued and was NEVER able to grow it.

The final verdict according to steam:
XP: 60.41%
Vista: 25.82%

The public (at least on steam) has spoken!

Am I right in saying that TechNet Plus subscribers will be able to download the RTM release, complete with product key on 13th July?

If so, I might consider a sub, as I'll also be able to legally get my paws on all the other software such as Server 2008, Exchange etc. :)

They wanted the same for Vista. Even after they stop support of XP but that apparently never happened. Which kills the notion "if we sell it they will buy it".

Most of the problems people have with Vista are because they can't configure Vista correctly or their programs were poorly written. Its not a resource hog if you throw the right switches.
390-460MB of RAM on the desktop isn't bad at all. (and yes, I use on a clean restart with AVAST!, Win LIVE!, F@H GPU/CPU, ATI CCC, Aero... and some more smaller programs under 430MB of RAM on the desktop.)
The page file itself sits under 600MB as well.

Most of the problems people have with Vista are because they can't configure Vista correctly or their programs were poorly written. Its not a resource hog if you throw the right switches.
390-460MB of RAM on the desktop isn't bad at all. (and yes, I use on a clean restart with AVAST!, Win LIVE!, F@H GPU/CPU, ATI CCC, Aero... and some more smaller programs under 430MB of RAM on the desktop.)
The page file itself sits under 600MB as well.

The GDI improvements in 7 make the memory footprint with many windows open even better, as the RAM copy can be discarded. Read all about it at the MSDN blog.
