Probablemente en un par de meses se encuentre disponible y se lance el RC Final para pruebas cerradas o tal vez abiertas como en el caso del Windows 7 Beta.
Actualmente se conoce del build 7048.winmain_win7rc1.090211-1625 creada y compilada el 11 de febrero de 2009 a las 4:25 PM.
News has come down the grapevine that Microsoft has already branched off winmain and started compiling RC1 branch builds, no doubt preparing for the public release of Windows 7 RC. This tells me that Microsoft is far ahead of schedule with Windows 7 development and are going full speed ahead to get this release polished up and done.
This news has come to us in the form of a build tag which sports the typical naming scheme for milestone branch builds. 7048.winmain_win7rc1.090211-1625 is the tag. As you can see, this build was compiled on February 11th 2009 at 4:25 PM. On one hand it is good to see Microsoft moving this quickly with the development of Windows 7, but on the other it is a little concerning. Microsoft have only officially released one build (7000) which went to beta testers and the public alike. One build is not enough to gather enough feedback to move ahead this quickly IMO. Windows is a far more complex piece of software than Office and I hope Mr. Sinofsky can learn that before this beta cycle is over.[...]
