Rumor: Windows 7 Release Candidate Due May 5

Microsoft has let slip a date for the much anticipated Windows 7 release candidate. While Windows 7 RC1 is apparently already in the hands of manufacturing partners, users will have to wait until May 5 when the download will likely be available direct from Microsoft.

Of course there’s a good chance that Windows 7 RC 1 will turn up on a BitTorrent server near you well before its official release.

As for the final release, Microsoft still isn’t talking, but Microsoft expert, Mary Jo Foley, says an October release is likely.
