Windows 7 Has Released – Available for Download on MSDN and Technet

Windows 7 Logo

Microsoft has delivered on their Promise!  Windows 7 RTM GOLD CODE is now officially released and available for download for Technet and MSDN Subscribers.  Unlike the day of the RC release, the download servers appear to be much faster.  I was able to download the ISOs without incident.

It’s going to be a long night :)



Just found a nice upgrade matrix for those looking to do an In-Place Upgrade (Not recommended) but for some of you who want to keep the free software that shipped with your OEM DELL or HP, I understand. :

      Nice – Did you do an in-place-upgrade or did you do a clean FRESH install?

        A CLEAN install of course :) !! Windows Vista has been cleansed from ALL my PC’s as of last night at 4am! – yeah… I had a lot of caffeine to work out of my system.

      Netbook… I have a suspicion were going to be seeing a lot of Windows 7 on Netbooks!
