Windows 7 Build 6.1.7600.16385 is RTM. Steven Sinofsky, president, Windows Division, and Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer announced the release to manufacturing of Windows Vista's successor on July 22nd, 2009. In just three months, on October 22nd, 2009, Windows 7 will hit the shelves, general availability for both the OEM and retail channels. But by October, Microsoft will serve the RTM bits of the platform to a variety of audiences. OEMs are the first in line, and are already getting the gold release of Windows 7.

“Windows 7 is a product not just of Microsoft, but of a whole industry of partners of all kinds. Throughout the development of Windows 7 we’ve seen an incredible engagement from so many people that have contributed to making the Windows 7 engineering project one we, collectively, feel good about. The feedback and collaboration throughout the development of Windows 7 has been outstanding and valuable beyond measure. This work has created the kind of experience so many of you have talked about in this blog—the ability to use a broad range of PC hardware and peripherals with a great setup and out of box experience. On behalf of the Windows team and all of the successful installations and device connections, please let me extend an incredible “thank you” to all of our hardware partners who have done such excellent work,” Sinofsky revealed.
