Over the last 2 blog posts we have looked at the client side of the next Microsoft Learning Gateway.
Since the posts Windows 7 has hit yet another milestone and the final one before general release on the 22nd October. Windows 7 RTM (Release To Manufactories) is the full version of the operating system and has been given to the likes of Samsung and HP for them to prepare for general release on their hardware.
If you are MSDN or TechNet subscriber you will already have access to Windows 7 RTM. Schools should also be able to download Windows 7 from Volume Licensing as well.
I have installed both 32bit and 64bit versions onto my computers and netbooks. My work desktop runs a 64bit version while my Samsung N120 runs the 32bit version. My home PC is now also running Windows 7 64bit which I am delighted about as this has made the machine even quicker as it was Windows Vista 32bit and I can run more virtual machines now for testing the new software for the next Learning Gateway.
