I've heard that it was today in another thread here. If so, it'll most likely be around Noon PST.

I approached this thread, thinking "Oh god, someone's trying to troll". Stop that.

As everyone said, it'll be up today. Sometime around afternoon.

I heard it the release has been postponed until October 22nd due to a serious bug in the RTM code.

That's extremely incorrect.

It's not like you don't have 30 days to activate. ;)

There has been no official news regarding the rescheduling of Technet and MSDN release of Windows 7 RTM, so it should be coming out today.

Just checked TechNet. Windows 7 RTM isn't on there yet. At least not for my account.

Whatever happens, they won't be releasing it until start of business in the US. I think it usually happens mid-afternoon EST.

Maybe because it's not anywhere close to NOON PST (Pacific Standard Time aka Redmond Time). :rolleyes:

There is no rescheduling. The chkdsk bug is no showstopper. Microsoft is probably going to provide a patch through Windows Update. They are not idiots to risk the launch date!

The code has been signed RTM and that won't change. Bugs discovered after RTM sign off will be solved through Windows Update. People should stop talking about things they don't have a clue...

PS: I just tested to see if the chkdsk bug affects my desktop. I ran chkdsk /r /f on one of my volumes (not the boot) and when chkdsk reached stage 4 its memory usage went up to 5GB in just a few seconds. I killed the process because it would take all 16GB of RAM that my machine has. Nasty Bug but no showstopper!

If you run chkdsk /f then the bug doesn't occur. The /r parameter causes the issue.

Actually we do not know when Microsoft is going live with Windows 7 RTM on Technet and MSDN. Noon PST hasn't been confirmed by anyone and is just an estimation, nothing more. Having said that I wish it will be sooner than that. I want to download Windows 2008 R2 Server and start testing it too.
