Microsoft wraps up Windows 7

As anticipated, Microsoft Corp. late last week announced that it had finished work on Windows 7, declaring that its next-generation operating system had met the “release to manufacturing,” or RTM, milestone.

Microsoft also announced that Windows Server 2008 R2, the server software companion to Windows 7, has achieved RTM status.

Computer makers were slated to start receiving the final version of Windows 7 on July 24; other hardware and software vendors will get their hands on Windows 7 on Aug. 6.

The first Windows 7-based PCs are expected to be available on Oct. 22, according to Microsoft.

Among the details still missing about Windows 7 are the launch date and price of the three-license ” family pack” that Microsoft has confirmed it will offer, and the prices for tools that users of one edition can purchase to unlock features in a higher version of the operating system.
