Windows 7 RTM Coming August 6; Family Pack Confirmed

Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc made two important announcements via the Windows 7 team blog today. First - Windows 7 RTM ( Relased To Manufacturing ) or what you can safely call the final version will be made available via MSDN/Micorosft Connect starting August 6. Initially it'll be the English language version. Other language versions should take a month or two more to come up.

Second important announcement was that he finally confirmed the Windows 7 family pack for multiple users. He said,"I'm happy to confirm that we will indeed be offering a family pack of Windows 7 Home Premium (in select markets) which will allow installation on up to 3 PCs."

The RTM release schedule for partners & OEMs, developers, beta testers, IT professionals and business consumers can be found in this article on the Windows 7 team blog.
