I've just had a very interesting chat with one of my clients (who works at IBM - he's a credible source IMO, and hasn't been wrong yet) who reckons RC builds are being compiled from the 8th February onwards.

The build floating about internally is slated to be : 7048.winmain_win7rc1.090211-1625

Tim.

EDIT :: just noticed on twitter this news seems to have reached Chris123nt, too.

Let's take this as fact, (until proven otherwise) seeing as build 7022 was compiled in January, it would make sense that 7048 is being built at this point in time.

What this also may mean, is that Microsoft has begun work on the next generation of Windows. It's usually around RC-1 that Microsoft starts laying the groundwork for the next version. I imagine that once RC-1 is released to the public, we might begin to see or hear about what's next from Redmond. Windows NT 7.0, perhaps. :P

I have a feeling MS is having their engineers work double-time to get this build out by the Winter Holidays...
I still can't imagine what features will be added in Windows 7++ .

Brandon Live (over at Neowin, MS Employee) has already said this to be very much fake.

You shouldn't take anything without a reliable source as fact, even if "Chris123nt" says anything about it, he confirmed this build to be real when infact it is not. (That wouldn't be the first time he was written junk...)

I would of said this several days back, but it wasn't worth it.

Windows 7 still need work to be done before compiling RC. Maybe April or Early May.

Hi all,

according to Winfuture, we can expect the RC on 10 April.

Source:
http://winfuture.de/news,45387.html

Winfuture is a bit late with this information, because this news is on the Internet since a few days but I haven't found this information somewhere on http://betaarchive.co.uk already.

*EDIT*
http://www.techpowerup.com/86000/Microsoft_Confirms_Windows_7_Release_Candidate_Will_Launch_on_April_10_2009.html

Now it's confirmed!! :D :D
