Default Windows 7 RC is here...almost here for most - 04-18-2009, 06:56 PM

From Engadget
Windows 7 RC coming May 5 for public consumption, out now for MSDN / TechNet subscribers

by Ross Miller, posted Apr 18th 2009 at 2:39PM

It's not as good as gold, but according to Microsoft's Partner Program website, Windows 7's release candidate is due out to the masses on May 5, a bit earlier than the BBC report had previously noted. MSDN and TechNet subscribers can apparently download the new build now, although Ars Technica is reporting it may not be up just yet. There's always the chance that this date was posted in error or will be pushed back, so in the meantime, perhaps marking your calendar with pencil or erasable pen isn't such a bad idea.

[Via Ars Technica; thanks, John]
I have access to both MSDN and TechNet so I'll be getting on this as soon as I get home. Sweet. RC means retail is not far behind.
