An official blog post from the Windows 7 team has confirmed that Windows 7 is set to launch this year. Brandon LeBlanc expects the OS to reach RTM (release-to-manufacturer) stage within 3 months and be ready in time for the holidays.
The news is hardly a surprise as a number of manufacturers had hinted of an Autumn release date. Windows 7 RC launched just last week and is a good opportunity to test how it will run on your current netbooks. As it doesn’t expire until March 2010 there’s no excuse not to give it a test drive.
