Beijing Time July 15 news, according to foreign media reports, Microsoft spokesman Brandon Leblanc (Brandon LeBlanc) through the official blog that the current "leaked" on the internet version of Windows 7 is not the RTM version (delivered to the manufacturer), while the real Windows 7 RTM will be launched in the second half of July. The following is the original Leblanc blog: I'd like to share some information about Windows 7 RTM. Over the past week, there have been a lot of rumors about Windows 7 RTM. Although it is nearing the end, we have not ended the development of Windows 7. Once RTM is finished, we will definitely announce it here. As we have always said, once completed, we will deliver Windows 7 to the manufacturer. Consistent with previous announcements, we expect Windows 7 to be delivered to the manufacturer in the second half of July. Windows 7 will have many language versions. For us, we need to complete all the language versions to finalize the RTM version. So we have a lot of work to do. We are also ready to work with our partners to prepare for global release. The readiness of our partners is particularly important for Windows 7 RTM. As Stephen Sinovsky, president of Windows, said in a May blog post, RTM is not a single point of time. The introduction of RTM means the beginning of the next process in Windows 7, including testing and advertising new PCs. RTM is actually the last engineering phase before Windows 7 GA (generalavailability) is formally marketed. As Stephen said, Windows 7 will also undergo a series of engineering designs from the RTM version until October 22 when the GA version is launched. It's also important to be clear that when we create some specific builds for Windows 7, we step through a lot of validation programs to ensure quality. This process takes time. Just because a build is "leaked" doesn't mean we've done an important version of RTM. In addition to this blog post, please do not trust any information you see on the Internet. Windows 7 is very exciting for everyone. I'm here to answer some questions about the RTM release: Q: Once Windows 7 is finished, how do I buy? A: This question depends on your identity:-If you are a registered user of MSDN and TechNet, you can download the final version of Windows 7 in a few weeks after RTM is released. -If you are a large number of authorized users (Volume License customer), you can get Windows 7 on September 1. -If you are an average user, enthusiast, beta tester, or otherAnyone, you can purchase a Windows 70 sale version on October 22. If you have already booked Windows 7, the product will be delivered around October 22, depending on the retailer. You can still book Windows 7 by online retail outlets today. -If you want to purchase a new Pc,oem vendor preinstalled Windows 7 is expected to start shipping around October 22. Q: Can I continue to use Windows 7 RC until I get the RTM version? A: Yes, you can continue to use the RC version until it expires. The RC version expires as early as March 1, 2010, and the latest is June 1, 2010. Please note that you cannot upgrade directly to RTM from Windows 7 RC, and you must reinstall the system. Q: I am a TechNet or MSDN registered user, can I get a product key? A: MSDN and TechNet registered users, as well as a large number of authorized users, can obtain a product key when Windows 7 is launched for it. The Windows RTM product key will differ from the Windows 7 Beta and RC product keys. The latter two product keys cannot be used in RTM. Q: I'm using the "leaked" Windows 7 build, how do I know if this is true? A: Whenever you are, be careful what you download. There are already a lot of Windows 7 masquerading on the web. Such products often contain malicious software. Do not blindly believe all the content on the Internet. Once RTM is launched, we'll announce it here. Before that, the build you downloaded was either not the final version or it contained malicious code. Q: How do I get 64-bit Windows 7? A: The upgrade and full version of the Windows 7 Home Premium, professional and flagship editions sold through the retail channel will include both 32-bit and 64-bit systems on the CD. In Windows Vista, only the flagship version contains 64-bit systems. But given the great popularity of the 64-bit platform and user feedback, we decided to change that strategy. Now, all Windows 7 discs sold in developed markets will include both 32-bit and 64-bit systems. What I want to emphasize is that the most important guideline we set for RTM is to deliver Windows 7 at the highest quality. Our first priority is quality. Thanks, stay tuned for more news on Windows 7. (Ding Macro)
