Possibly the most anticipated Windows operating system ever is now available for download in Release Candidate form. Windows 7 is Microsoft’s attempt at mitigating many of the usability concerns with Vista, and after using the beta 1 version as my main operating system on both my desktop and laptop (yeah, a bit risky, I know) for the past few months, I’m confident in saying it does that and more. What’s especially pleasing to see is that Microsoft is directly incorporating customer feedback into Windows 7Â throughout the pre-RTM product phases. I hope this is a precursor for future collaboration with their other products as well.
Currently, rumours put the official Windows 7Â launch in October of this year. That will certainly make for an exciting work term!
