Part 17 is missing
Many thanks for all your hard work. Could you post part 17?
part 17 is good!!!
I have one question, is the RC the final version of windows 7? Or is the term RTM the real final that shows up in the stores? Or won't there be any difference between the RC and the RTM?
bokkoman : this was already answered a few times now.
Please do use the search feature next time.
It's not the RTM version.
RC - Release Candidate
RTM - Ready To Manufacture
The difference is that RC may still (and does - as I read about a few minor issues on the different forums) contain some bugs. They are still polishing them out.
IF there won't be any 'showstopper' bugs (call them - major) then - by putting it very simply - yes.
The RC code is ironed out and branched to the RTM builds.
I would recommend you to read the "Charting Windows 7 development"
so you can understand the various branches, builds and how it works.
Please post the Picture of Windows 7 RC
The Windows 7 RC expires on June 1, 2010. Starting on March 1, 2010, PCs running Windows 7 RC began shutting down every two hours.
If you're still running the RC, your PC will continue shutting down every two hours and your files won't be saved during shutdown. In addition, your wallpaper will change to a solid black background with a persistent message on your desktop. You'll also get periodic notifications that Windows isn't genuine. That means your PC may no longer be able to obtain optional updates or downloads requiring genuine Windows validation.
To avoid interruption, please reinstall a prior version of Windows or move to Windows 7. In either case, you'll need to do a custom (clean) install to replace the RC. As with any clean installation, you'll need to back up your data then reinstall your applications and restore the data.
Thanks again for helping us test Windows 7.
