Technically Speaking All in on IT

Microsoft announced at 1:40pm PST yesterday that Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 have officially been “Released to Manufacturing” which is to say all the bits have been finalized and signed off on. You can read announcements here, here and here. And, of course, all over the twittersphere.

Bits hit TechNet +, volume licensing download sites and MSDN on August the 6th.

I can now rebuild my laptop for the last time (until that Windows 8 beta is released).

Congratulations Microsoft. Some critics in Cupertino will say this should be called Windows Vista sp2 but personally, I don't care what you call it. It is a major revision in usability, speed and performance that I am happy to see come out of Redmond.
