A colleague of mine from Magenic, IM tag Estragon, just IM’d with news that the Windows 7 RC had been released for MSDN subscribers. I did a quick google search for the official announcement which took me to this Microsoft Partners site https://partner.microsoft.com/US/40084742:
I was naturally curious and followed the Download link, which redirects to the MSDN subscription site. Unfortunately, there was nothing about the RC on the downloads page, which I found very odd. I kept refreshing the page, hoping something would change, but this is what I continued to see:
My colleague then IM’d me that he didn’t think he could go on like this. We’d been waiting for the RC for so long and this was just a remarkable let down. We began to question our very faith in Windows 7 at this point. Sure, it looked great in beta, but did we in fact know anything about it? Was it even worth waiting for anymore. The rest of the IM chat went something like this:
But we didn’t go anywhere. IM chats are sort of silly that way. Maybe the RC will come tomorrow.
