Windows 7 RTM Available from next Thursday 6 August (MSDN only)

I just found out about this yesterday, those of us lucky enough to have developer MSDN subscriptions can get hold of the RTM version of Windows 7 over two months before it's released in the shops, and for 'free' !

Hope this info is useful for some people.

This information has been known for days...

Not 100% sure of its usefulness... Theres about 5 people on here with MSDN accounts, and I would be surprised if any of us didn't know the release date

All good though.

Notice the date: neowin.net/new…t-6

Well I for one didn't find out until yesterday, and I'm pretty sure that there will be others who weren't aware either.

Oh, and this is Misc, where 'usefulness' doesn't really come into it for most things lately.

fair point

Hopefully this will be available to student MSDN subscribers too.

Been putting off installing the RC as the release date was coming up soon and would of preferred waiting for a release version without an expiring key.

No, but you wouldn't want to get one just to get Windows 7 a bit early!
Cheapest one is £469
