Windows 7: You Want It, You Got It
If you're jonesin' for a real, pretty much final copy of Windows 7, you're in luck -- provided you're an MSDN or TechNet member.
Now, bear with me if you're not a Ph.D. in Microsoft naming conventions. Recently, we had a beta of Windows 7 that turned into a release candidate (RC), which means it's almost ready for release (not sure if it has to win a majority of votes). Before we get to the real, true, actual, final, final commercial product, we have one more little beauty -- the release-to-manufacturing (RTM) version, which means OEMs now get the software.
IT insiders can nab this item, as well, so long as they have a special relationship with Microsoft, such as a TechNet or MSDN sub. Many Redmond readers fit into this category and I'm dying to know how you like the RTM. Your impressions readily received at email@example.com.
