Windows 7 Release Candidate due in May?

Microsoft posted a download page for the next major Windows 7 milestone. The page, since removed, said the Windows 7 Release Candidate would be out in May — a bit later than previous rumors of an April RC. Emil Protalinski at Ars Technica spotted the Microsoft TechNet download page and has recreated it on his blog. A release candidate is one of the last stops on the way to a final version of the operating system. Ed Bott at ZDNet incorporates the new info from the TechNet page into his estimated Windows 7 timeline. He’s guessing late September for a retail launch, setting up for holiday PC shopping. “[H]oliday sales are crucial, and a September release allows for a full-on marketing blitz for the fourth quarter,” Bott wrote.
