After much anticipation, Microsoft has announced that Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 have been released to manufacturing (RTM). The build numbers are is 7600 and 7200 respectively and my post yesterday highlighted the dates when partners and customers will be able to get their hands on the software.

Congratulations to the Windows client and server teams on shipping two great operating system releases. They have their own blog posts on the subject (Windows client and server). I’ll be writing more Windows 7 (and Server 2008 R2) content over the coming days and months so stay tuned!

(System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 has also RTMed to coincide with will be released within 60-days with support for the new version of Hyper-V contained within Windows Server 2008 R2 and Hyper-V Server 2008 R2.)
