Windows 7 RTM signed-off, according to Russian sources

July 18th, 2009 | Tags:

According to reports made by Russian site WZOR, Windows 7 was signed off this evening. In a translated quote from WZOR “This morning, Moscow time (in the United States was the evening) signed gold code release to manufacturers Windows 7 RTM:

Even last night (16 hours for MSK 16.07.2009 year), we told you about the preliminary results of a vote on the final “gold code” Windows 7 INTERNATIONAL and wondering what in the vote cast 24 votes against discussing 6.1.7600.16385.090713 build – 1255″

As usual leaked versions of both Windows 7 RTM and Windows 2008 R2 RTM are circulating but without legitimate keys I really don’t understand why people would bother? My advice would be to get yourself an MSDN or TechNet subscription (if not done so already) – PRONTO because if this information is true then subscibers may have retail copies as early as the end of the month, watch this space!
