Finally!!! Windows 7 RC1 on May 5

No its not another unofficial leak released on torrent sites hahaha. Finally Microsoft revealed on their official Microsoft Windows 7 blog that the Release Candiate (RC) will be available for the public on May 5th. This means that folks all around the world can download and run Windows 7 RC on their PC legitimately.

Brandon LeBlanc confirmed the details on Microsoft blog about the availability.

I’m pleased to share that the RC is on track for April 30th for download by MSDN and TechNet subscribers. Broader, public availability will begin on May 5th.

For those who are curious, Windows 7 is the next flagship operating system by Microsoft. It features vastly improved kernel upgrades which can be evidently felt by its speed and compatibility compared to its predecessor Windows Vista.

Windows 7 beta was tested and proved fast and stable even on underpowered netbooks running 1.6GHz Atom microprocessor with 1GB of RAM. upgrading your system to at least 2GB of RAM is highly recommended though.


  1. FINALLY. we all have been waiting for this release because of the incompatibility of game guard to the beta version and they refuse to make an update which supports it until the official release.

  2. I sure hope they fix this problem. I’d say this was more a gameguard development problem rather than a windows problem though.

  3. Well, I just hope there will be an update for the Gameguard games to be available on the Release Candidate.

  4. Well Windows 7 RC1 is installed and after attempting to run Mir2 USA (protected by gameguard) it seems I still have the same incompatibility error. After contacting nProtect, I received a reply saying that until Windows 7 is an official and fully released version, that they will not support it.. So it seems there is approximately a year before it works with game guard.
